ancient colors…

Not everyone knows this, I suppose, but plenty of small traces of paint on ancient Greek and Roman statues tell us that they were originally painted, not displayed in the pristine marble state we usually think of.

Not only that, the colors used were often quite strong, lacking any sublety at all! 🙂
