Handmade greek alabaster bust of Socrates with color, the greek philosopher. An ideal souvenir from Greece!

Socrates was a greek philosopher of the 5th century BC. Known from the Plato's Dialogues, Socrates spent his life in the ancient Athens discussing in the agora matters of philosophy, politics, human ethics and love. He is known for his statement I know that I know nothing and he is considered as on of the founders of western Philosophy. 

In ancient Greece many of the statues and architectural sculpture were colourfully painted in a way that is described as ''polychrome'' (deriving from the Greek words many and colour)? However, due to intensive weathering and other effects on the stone, the ''polychromy'' on Ancient Greek sculpture and architecture has substantially or totally faded, leading the scientists for centuries to believe that the statues were originally totally white.
