Colorful nanotech and ancient

Despite popular perception ancient statues and reliefs from Greece and Rome were not left dully and gray but were colorfully painted. Now nanotechnology has brought to colorful life two decades of work to show, in a traveling exhibition organized by the Glyptothek museum in Munich, Germany, just how such artifacts may have originally appeared. Archaeologist Vinzenz Brinkmann, a leading authority in this field, has used rapid prototyping stereolithography together with a photopolymer, NanoTool and non-crystalline nanoparticles, to create a smooth and authentic finish to pieces such as a reproduction of the Alexander Sarcophagus.
