Point of comparison

This crowning palmette (probably placed on the top of the propylon, "sanctuary gate", ca 500 BC) from Aegina is slightly different in shape from it's terracotta counterpart posted a few weeks ago, but the point remains - this is how stone looks after 2000 years compared to terracotta. Notice that the picture is sharp even as the worn stone give you the impression that it is blurry.
