“Gods In Colour: Painted Sculpture of Classical Antiquity” Exhibition in Germany

Contrary to popular belief that the ancient Greeks and Romans were averse to colour, experts have said in the time of their creation, Roman and Greek monuments were vibrant and multi-coloured.

A recent exhibition: “Gods In Colour: Painted Sculpture of Classical Antiquity” features more than 20 full size colour reconstructions of Greek and Roman works, alongside 35 original statues and pieces of art reports The Daily Mail. The curators are now touring the exhibition and it is currently on show at The Pergamon Museum in Berlin, Germany. The exhibit is scheduled to tour many other European destinations, including London.


  1. I’m coming from Germany, but my parents – esp. my grandfather – have american ancestors. So I consider myself to be German with a little bit Anglo-American impact. This ideas about the German way seem to be extremely pessimistic to me; I’d strongly believe, American politicians could learn much from how german society is handling its problems in the moment.
