Tomb Siren, Greek Asia Minor, c. 550 BCE, marble, Nye Carlsberg Glyptotek (Copenhagen, Denmark). Made with Memento Beta (now ReMake) from AutoDesk.

The Sirens were bird-women whose music comforted the dead on the way to the Underworld. This one holds a kithara and plectrum with which to play.

3D scans are a great way to share cultural heritage with the world. I mainly use photogrammetry and Memento beta from Autodesk. I share 3D model through "Scan the world", a MyMiniFactory´s project.
