Plan de Rome Le Plan de Rome Le Plan de Rome est une grande maquette en plâtre de près de 70 m² qui représente la Rome antique au temps de l'empereur Constantin (IVe s. apr. J.-C.). Classé à l'Inventaire des monuments historiques, il est l'œuvre de l'architecte normand Paul Bigot (1870-1942), Grand Prix de Rome en 1900 et Professeur à l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Paris. Interpretation of the Alexander Mosaic (The following is a quotation from Traute Petersen: Das Alexandermosaik von Pompeji. In: Eberhardt Schwalm (Hrsg.): Folienbuch Geschichte 1. Bilder für den Unterricht. The Lod mosaics – a carnival of animals The pace of construction of new buildings, roads, and infrastructure throughout the world has led to a number of spectacular archaeological finds in recent years. Among the most significant is that of a series of Roman mosaic floors at Lod in Israel, almost the centre of interaction between Roman, Christian, Jewish and Muslim culture, accidentally uncovered during road construction in 1996. Dating from around AD300, the mosaics are a riot of birds, shells, fishes and animals and include one of the earliest known images of both a rhinoceros and a giraffe. Although some of the animals appear to be tearing each other apart, they share seraphic, although slightly sinister, expressions, which one historian went so far as to describe as "erotic". The Lod mosaics were of such exceptional quality, and in such an excellent state of preservation, that it was decided, wisely, to rebury them until a plan had been formulated to secure their long-term future.

Animating the Battles and Mythology of Greek Vases “Combat,” part of the Ure Discovery series from Panoply animating Greek vases (GIF Hrag Vartanian/Hyperallergic, via YouTube) Greek vases have some of the most lively of ancient art with their flat figures engaged in combat, sports, and epic mythology. A duo called Panoply has been turning these vases into animations to explore their stories and make classical archaeology more engaging for a younger crowd. Still from “Clash of the Dicers” (2014) (GIF Hrag Vartanian/Hyperallergic, via YouTube) Animator Steve K. Simons, who started experimenting with the vases in 2007, collaborates with Sonya Nevin, a research fellow at the University of Roehampton in London with a doctorate on ancient Greek warfare from University College Dublin.

Paint It Black? Understanding Black Figure Pottery We at Ancient History Encyclopedia are fierce about historical accuracy. This often leads to debate and discussion among the AHE team as we try to sort out what really happened in ancient history, when, and why. So when I read our definition on black figure pottery last week, I was extremely confused. In numerous art history classes, I'd learned that the exciting thing about black figure pottery, in addition to its sheer beauty, is the process by which it is made.

Inicio La religión es un camino ideal para quien desee penetrar en el corazón de la antigua Grecia. Más allá de las divisiones políticas que fraccionaban a las ciudades rivales y celosamente autónomas, la religión ofrecía una plataforma de prácticas y creencias que, como la lengua, unía a los griegos. La importancia de la religión helena se debía también al fundamento mítico sobre el cual se apoyaba y que le ha asegurado una proyección universal. Les dieux dans les vases grecs (BNF) Léto est l’une des conquêtes amoureuses de Zeus. Quand elle fut enceinte, la jalouse Héra la poursuivit de sa colère, interdisant à la Terre d’accueillir la naissance à venir, et au soleil de briller là où naîtraient ses enfants. Elle trouva finalement refuge sur l’île de Délos où naquirent les jumeaux Artémis, déesse vierge de la chasse, liée à la lune, et Apollon, le dieu musicien proche du soleil, qui préside aussi aux divinations et aux guérisons. Au centre de l’image de cette hydrie est assis Apollon, couronné de laurier, une grande cithare sur les genoux ; une peau de fauve orne son siège, et un oiseau semble s’envoler de l’instrument. Il tend une large phiale à Artémis pour qu’elle y verse une libation de sa cruche (œnochoé) ; portant son arc, deux flèches et un carquois, elle est accompagnée par une biche. Hydrie (kalpis) attique attribuée au peintre des Niobides, Athènes, 460-450 av.

LaunchPad: Ancient Greek Vase Production and the Black-Figure Technique Used for the storage and shipment of grains, wine, and other goods, as well as in the all-male Greek drinking party, known as the symposium, ancient Greek vases were decorated with a variety of subjects ranging from scenes of everyday life to the tales of heroes and gods. The two most popular techniques of vase decoration were the black-figure technique, so-named because the figures were painted black, and the red-figure technique, in which the figures were left the red color of the clay. The black-figure technique developed around 700 B.C. and remained the most popular Greek pottery style until about 530 B.C., when the red-figure technique was developed, eventually surpassing it in popularity.

Le port antique de Rome revit grâce au virtuel Des chercheurs ont déblayé virtuellement le plus grand port antique de Méditerranée, aujourd’hui complètement ensablé, et ont remis en mouvement l’eau qui s’y trouvait. Un travail qui a permis de répondre à une question qui taraudait les archéologues depuis longtemps. Le port antique de Rome, le Portus, fut le plus grand port du monde méditerranéen antique. Il y a deux millénaires, son bassin s’étalait à perte de vue sur le delta du Tibre.

Acropolis Virtual Tour The Virtual Tour of the Acropolis is a web application based on HTML5 technologies (webGL and CSS3D) to display effectively panoramic photographic images in desktop and mobile browsers. The production of panoramic photomosaics at resolutions of several gigapixels was realised between 2010 and 2014 by employing established practices of digital image acquisition and processing. In order to achieve the best possible mapping of natural lighting on the monuments together with the display of shaded details, High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging techniques were used for capturing and combining different exposure levels of the same theme. Starting from the RAW photos all the way up to the combined and color-corrected finalised panoramas, all intermediate outputs were maintained in order to be able to reproduce and control the entire manufacturing process for future reference. The krpano viewer and revelant tools are used for the display of the panoramic images within the application.

Mythologie grecque Comme le montre l’abondance des monuments, des œuvres d’art et toute la tradition littéraire qui va d’Homère aux travaux des mythographes modernes, la mythologie grecque est l’une des plus riches qui soient.
