I will have to start out by apologizing that i have not taken any art history classes but I am sure someone who did might be able to answer this question. I recall when I visited the museum I saw many intricate ancient pieces with black background and pixilated white dots. The white dots were sometimes formed their own design, and other times they were just used to fill in a form.
Does somebody know what this technique is called and what period / origin is?
Just curious because I am inspired by ancient design.
