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 !)

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
