The white marble used in Greek and Roman temples and statues is one of the greatest symbols of Classical Antiquity. This marble can be found in Art History books, museums, and surviving monuments, and it was precisely this material that that was used to produce copies of these objects - during the Renaissance, Neoclassicism and the various revivals of Classicism in Europe and North America - and which continue to be replicated today. In this context, white marble has become synonymous with good taste, and people who know how to appreciate and surround themselves with references to Antiquity. But is it right to associate white with classical aesthetics?
