This years 'illustration 57' expo - theme was 'science'. I contributed with this illustration about the shipwreck of the Antikythera.
This illustration tells about the recovery of a mysterious object from the bottom of the sea near the Greek Island Antikythera in 1901.
Over a century this ‘Antikythera mechanism’ plagued the minds of scientist.
New techniques such as X-ray, carbon dating and 3D photography kept bringing the research back to life after it seemed to have hit a wall. Eureka, in 2003 they knew.
It was a 2000-year-old analogue computer for ancient Greek astrologist to calculate the movements of the sky.
