Ancient Greco-Roman Sculptures in Color at a Copenhagen Museum
Here is a really interesting series of photos posted in the Hyperallergic art forum yesterday, all from an exhibition currently on view at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen. The exhibition, "Transformations: Classical Sculpture in Color", takes common sculptures from the Ancient Greco-Roman times and paints them in accordance to heavy science-based research. The results are astonishing and really bring to life the faces and iconography of these ancient cultures. Read more about the exhibition, plus a brief interview with the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek's curator Jan Stubbe Østergaard, in the link below.

Hahahaha the colored sculpture looks funny in my eyes. It's cool and creative though.

@cindystran Yeah, the painted version of that lion looks all sorts of blinged out.
