classic tacky

I was so busy on Friday, I forgot to post my Friday Fluff. That won’t do! Here’s an amusing post from BoingBoing.net on The Glory (and Tackiness) of Ancient Greece. Yes, it’s true, white is not the original color of those classic images in statues and temples. The post points to this article with a little more detail and a few more illustrations. I’m sure they seemed less tacky at the time they were created. Or maybe not.
