3D scanning of neolithic clay figurines

As part of the work around the upcoming "Archaeology Night" at Heureka the Finnish Science  Centre (4.12.2014) this day was dedicated to 3D scanning of three of the stone-age figurines found on the neolithic dwelling site of Jokiniemi  (Vantaa S. Finland).

The mobile equipment and staff came from Versoteq but the printing will be done at Heureka.

The idea is to give the visitors a "hands on experience" of the figurines as well as a chance to see and rotate the figurines in 3D on screen.

3D scanning in progress.

With the good lighting in the room I managed to take a few more pictures of the figurines myself :)
