Elaborate Grecian hairstyles copied from Acropolis Museum statues come to life on Fairfield University student volunteers

Dr. Katherine Schwab, associate professor of art history, arranged for Acropolis Museum caryatid coiffures to come to life on six student volunteers. News 12 CT interviewed Dr. Schwab and filmed one of the elaborate hair styles as it was being completed.  The exercise was designed to determine whether or not the sculptors invented an artistic convention or used real hairstyles.
