Vatican exhibit explores ancient art


A new free exhibit of ancient art opens today at the Vatican Museums and runs until Jan. 31.

"The Colors of White" exhibit features 15 reproductions, some alongside the originals, which show the real colors with which ancient works were created, before the hues were washed away by rain and bleached by the sun over the centuries.

“It is as if these artworks were made right now by ancient artists,” said Francesco Buranelli, director of the Vatican Museums.
