Así se verían los personajes de la historia si estuviesen vivos

Una web recrea por computadora el aspecto que tendrían hoy personajes históricos como Julio César o Cleopatra, entre otros


Quién no ha dejado volar la imaginación en clase de Historia. Quién no se ha imaginado en el antiguo Egipto, o en Roma, caminando por sus calles, contemplando a los protagonistas escapados de las páginas de los libros.

La diseñadora estadounidense Becca Saladin ha llevado sus sueños a la práctica con el proyecto «Royalty Now», en el que reproduce, a partir de bustos o pinturas, el aspecto que tendrían ahora los personajes más conocidos de la Historia.

El resultado es curioso, ya que además de reproducir la fisionomía de los personajes, los viste y peina como a cualquier hijo de vecino en el siglo XXI.

Sus diseños están disponibles bajo pago en Internet, pero ha compartido algunos de los mejores en su perfil de Instagram:

I’ve been resisting doing Cleopatra for some time, simply because there aren’t many reliable depictions of her, and most descriptions of her by historians were made after her death. However, I’ve gotten so many requests for her, I wanted to give you all what you’ve been asking for 🥰 . . The closest thing we have are Roman busts from the first century BCE, around the time that Cleopatra would have been visiting Rome. I chose to base my recreation off of the Berlin Bust of Cleopatra, which was thought to have been created around 46-44 BCE. I chose this bust because most of the depictions of her include common features – a strong nose, full lips, and small chin. It’s also hard to tell what her skin & hair colors were – most descriptions describe her as dark haired and “honey-skinned”, but some even say she was a redhead. Consider this my “Artist’s Rendition” of a way that she could have possibly looked. Bottom line, Cleopatra was an amazing woman. She was intelligent, witty, spoke several languages, and was incredibly skilled in diplomacy. I really enjoyed learning more about her during research for this recreation! . .
