Today’s animation is a World War II-era porcelain Japanese hand grenade that was scanned at the Virginia War Memorial on October 20, 2014.  Toward the latter part of World War II, metal became increasingly scarce for the Japanese Empire so manufacturers turned to ceramics to produce hand grenades. Digital Curation Specialist Lauren Volkers created this animation from her edited digital model on October 21, 2014.
