The main secret of antiquity: this is how ancient statues really looked 7/30/2016 • Terry Defoe
Time knows no touch of pity.
We all got used to the fact that antique sculptures were made out of marble. That is why all the ancient sculptures are white now, aren’t they? However, Vinzenz Brinkmann and his team made an astounding discovery: all these sculptures were once polychrome. As years and hundreds of years pass, the unique masterpieces of antiquity tarnish, thus losing their battle with time.
A group of archeologists made up their minds to restore some of the sculptures to their “original form”. A large number of reconstructions have been carried out in the form of 3D copies in their original size.
The polychrome was carried out only with the paint substances that were verifiably used on the original. Enjoy!
