As a hobby I like to colorise things from antiquity. Here is my colorisation of a ~3500 year old Mycenaean seal stone found in 2017.

The "Pylos Combat Agate" is only 3.4 centimetres long, yet full of detail.

Originally it was not in colour, but I thought I'd try it out to make more apparent its splendour:

The original for comparison:

Pretty cool.

Have you tried using more realism. Maybe more mysticism?

My vocabulary for art is limited. lol

Arbanon had a crucial role in the survival of Albanian.

The emblem was found in 1901 in a Mirdita church alongside inscriptions with the names Progon & Dimitri, rulers of Arbanon.
