    Ancient Colorisations

    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

    Colourisation of the Pincipality of Arbanon emblem, dated 1215 AD





    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.
