SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT
3D digitization of an engraving in a cave
Facsimile for Prehistoiry Museum of Tarascon, France
Laboratory CNRS TRACES, Toulouse
mammoth engraving 3D scanning in a cave
We made the 3D scanning of the engraved mammoth of the Saint-Front de Domme cave in Dordogne to make a scale 1 to 1 replica for the exhibition “Giants from Ice Age” at Parc de la Préhistoire de Tarascon. This replica shows the importance of animal representation in art during Prehistory.
The high definition 3D scanned model is also a digital backup. It will serve on the future to compare to new acquisitions to see the state of conservation.
