How Ancient Greek Statues Really Looked

In Living Color: What Ancient Greek Statues Looked Like

I found this from the Best of Digg.  For those interested in Ancient Greek Civilization, Greek Mythology, or just plain old Percy Jackson fans, check out this post from ColourLovers that depicts ancient Greek sculpture and how they really looked based on scientific research. Can you imagine how the ruins today must have really looked like back in the day?  It must have been amazing!
