Pretty neat use of gifs to show reconstructed views of ancient wonders of the world.

Thanks for this.

On the Parthenon: some archeologists think it was painted. Which is also cool to contemplate. http://www.nbcnews.com/id/11945940/ns/t ... 0ms2chKiDI

Your link doesn't work you daffy old man. Here's a rather hilarious article in the ZOG New York Times that tries to suggest that the whiteness of Greek and Roman statuary was a myth, only to find out when they reconstructed the pigments, guess what? They were even whiter than they thought. Link:

Also, it turns out that they had the color preferences of a Harlem pimp. More here:

Sorry about the link. It had conceptual pix of what the temple might have looked like. Here's one more to your liking. It shows Parthenon statues of muscular guys with their shirts off. https://www.bbc.com/culture/article/201 ... ng-colours
