Today’s animation is a miniature representing a French 3rd Regiment soldier from the Napoleonic Wars. Virginia Commonwealth University undergraduate student Chelsea Miller brought this figurine to the Virtual Curation Laboratory from the Virginia War Memorial, where she is currently an intern.  The figurine was scanned as part of an effort to digitally highlight part of the Virginia War Memorial’s collection, which includes an extensive collection of historic-period miniatures.
