The illustrations are adapted from actual Greek artwork on vases and urns. They thus have a two-dimensional, stylized quality, rather than the naturalistic look of Greek sculpture. The style of the drawings is a bit like ancient Egyptian paintings, which I was more familiar with. They are very detailed, which made it fun to color them. I recommend colored pencils, rather than crayons or markers. I suppose watercolors with a fine brush and not too much water would work, too.
I love it that the drawings are from authentic ancient Greek sources. This gives a glimpse into how the Greeks themselves saw their world and their mythology. I am planning to get a new copy for my daughter, who will be learning about ancient Greece in the coming school year.
