by Bernard K. Means, Director, Virtual Curation Laboratory


Today’s animation is a sculpture of Ganesha that dates to circa 12th century A.D. from Ranihat.  It is located in the Museum of Himalayan Archaeology and Ethnograohy at HNB Garhwal University, which is located in Srinagar (Garhwal), state of Uttarakhand, India.

I scanned this statue with a Structure Scanner attached to an iPad Mini in the museum itself while on a trip to the university as part of a collaborative project with Dr. Vinod Nautiyal. Details on this project can be found here.

The digital model was edited in the Virtual Curation Laboratory and then printed at a reduced scale using a MakerBot Mini.
