The past, as if you where there?
Benoît Clarys, illustrator
For more than 25 years, Benoît Clarys put his drawning and coloring talents at the service of the archaeological restituion, from Prehistory till the Early Modern Period.
Some 50 original drawnings are shown besides his many sources of inspiration (skulls, mammoth, archeological objects, photos...). Under his pencil, his brush or his crayon, a mammoth come back to live, Neanderthal meet Cro-Magnon, a roman road is building...
In front of the objects, the visitor may compare the archeological source to his illustrated interpretation, and understand the influence of the drawning on his way of seeing the past.
Video capsules and fascicles allow the visitor to enrich the mainly visual path.
