Today’s animation is a clay female figurine fragment from Mount Vernon’s midden.  It dates to the middle of the 18th century. Details about this figurine can be found at Mount Vernon’s midden project web site here.  This color animation was made by Allen Huber from a 3D scan of the object made on July 17, 2012. A printed version was recently made with a MakerBot Replicator.
