Ever wandered what important people in Ancient Greece such as Homer, Alexander the Great and Aristotle would look like today?
Artist Alessandro Tomasi has answered this question by bringing the past back to life.
On Twitter, Tomasi has posted reconstructed faces of Ancient Greek and Roman philosophers, poets and politicians.
He used statues and busts kept in various museums around the world as references.
