ABSTRACT In this paper a novel general methodology is introduced for the computer-aided reconstruction of the magnificent wall-paintings of the Greek island Thera (Santorini), painted in the middle of the second millennium BC. These wall-paintings are excavated in fragments and, as a result, their(More)
In this paper, a new decisively important factor in both the perceptual and the automated piano-guitar identification process is introduced. This factor is determined by the nontonal spectral content of a note, while it is, in practice, totally independent of the note spectrum tonal part. This conclusion and all related results are based on a number of(More)
In this paper, a color image segmentation method and a pattern analysis are presented, in connection with the extraordinary 1650 B.C. wall paintings found in the Greek island of Thera. These wall paintings are usually reconstructed from thousands of fragments widely scattered in the excavated site. The fragments’ depiction manifests inhomogeneous color(More)
In this work a new methodology is introduced for the automated reassembling/reconstruction of fragmented objects using their 3D digital representation. The whole process starts by 3D scanning of the available fragments. These are subsequently properly processed and the obtained fragmentspsila 3D images are automatically tested for possible matching, by(More)
This paper, introduces a new approach for the automated reconstructionreassembly of fragmented objects having one surface near to plane, on the basis of the 3D representation of their constituent fragments. The whole process starts by 3D scanning of the available fragments. The obtained representations are properly processed so that they can be tested for(More)
In this paper, a methodology of general applicability is presented for answering the question if an artist used a number of archetypes to draw a painting or if he drew it freehand. In fact, the contour line parts of the drawn objects that potentially correspond to archetypes are initially spotted. Subsequently, the exact form of these archetypes and their(More)
In this paper, an original general methodology is introduced to establish whether a handmade shape corresponds to a given geometrical prototype. Using this methodology, one can decide if an artist had the intention of drawing a specific mathematical prototype or not. This analysis is applied to the 1650 B.C. wall paintings from the prehistoric settlement on(More)
In this article, an integrated conjecture about the method of drawing of monumental prehistoric wall-paintings is presented and supported. Specifically, the article deals with paintings that initially decorated the internal walls of the highest floor of a building, called “Xeste 3”, at Akrotiri of the Greek island of Thera circa. 1650 B.C. It is(More)
In this paper, a general methodology is introduced for the determination of potential prototype curves used for the drawing of prehistoric wall paintings. The approach includes 1) preprocessing of the wall-paintings contours to properly partition them, according to their curvature, 2) choice of prototype curves families, 3) analysis and optimization in(More)
