I put it here …

Today I read about an exhitibion of reconstructed colourful antique statues !

Some pictures can be seen here: http://www.liebieghaus.de/lh/index.php?StoryID=51

This is very interesting, imho, because it shows that in ancient times, statues were very colourful, in stark contrast to common belief !

(I had heard of this earlier, but never seen actual reconstructions. This is most impressive to me !)
