Hypatia was a brilliant philosopher and mathematician, head of the Platonist School at Alexandria in the 4th century. She is portrayed here by actress Rachel Weisz in the movie 'AGORA', trying to save scrolls from being destroyed by a Christian mob.

Thus he rather was ahead of his time in his use of color/color blocking. Ironic since he seemed so obsessed with the past.
