Temple of Dendur In Living Colour

I'm familiar with the beige sandstone Temple Of Dendur and didn't realize that it wasn't always colourless. Egyptologists know that this temple, like many others of the ancient world, was painted with vivid colors and patterns.
In "Color the Temple," a marriage of research and projection-mapping technology, visitors to the Met can now glimpse what the Temple may have looked like in its original polychromatic form more than 2,000 years ago.
