when the statues comes to life...

When the bronze original was discovered in the sea it held nothing in its raised right hand. Thus, we cannot know whether it shows the sea god Poseidon, who would be holding a trident, or Zeus, ruler of the gods, brandishing his thunderbolt. The figure is a prime example of the stringent classical style that marks the transition from Archaic stiffness with its familiar stereotypical smile towards a greater range of expression, as is evident here where we see the body captured at the moment before the deity’s anger and strength is released in his throw.

This is a 3D scan of a plaster cast of the sculpture ‘Zeus or Poseidon from the Artemision’ dated circa 460-450 BCE.

The scan is made from the cast (ref. KAS2100) in The Royal Cast Collection at SMK – National Gallery of Denmark.

Hello stephane42
Is it possible to inform me how I can purchase these 3D prints?
Thanks in advance. :-D

Great looking figure again! :thumbup:

In that last picture we have to look for the three differences between the figures? Yes? ;-)

Thanks again for your reply :-D , but I still have some questions about 3D printing. :oops:
I guess you download the files, convert them to 1/72 scale and finally print them on your own 3D printer?
In this case is it easy to convert a file to the desired scale?

hello Kostis Ornerakis!
I'm not the one who prints the figurines because I don't have a 3D printer yet ... but the scaling is not complicated from what I know.
