3DScan Spotlight – Statues/Art

Fun fact: The first object we scanned in early 2013 was a statue, so today were going to look back at our favorite statue/art scans from the last 7 years!

Some of best examples we have from those early days were of Thai origin; there is something about the aged materials and the details employed on so many piece that make for a great scan. One of the ones we brought back from Thailand was this great metallic Buddha head:

Since then we have worked closely with Spirithouse to scan several more Thai objects and carvings, as well as other pacific nation artifacts:

When artist Ivan Eyre’s Birdwrap statue made its residency in Vancouver, I made a point to scan this amazing work and the results were excellent! The embedded model bellow is greatly reduced in size to 14k polygons:

The first native art we scanned was Susan Point’s Welcome Gateway permanently installed in Stanley Park:

One of the most challenging exterior scans would have to be Abraham Anghik’s Spirits in the landscape, commissioned by BC Gas and permanently installed at 1111 West Georgia in Vancouver.
