As a public service, the Rome Reborn team is pleased to make available here its collection of 3D models of casts of ancient Greek and Roman sculpture.
Here you will find models of the sculpture digitized by Flyover Zone Productions (FZP). We use the models as points of departure for our digital restorations of ancient sculpture. In a restoration, we repair surface damage, add missing parts (e.g., a nose or hand), and change the overall appearance (e.g., by restoring the color to a white marble statue, or by converting the material from plaster of Paris to bronze). By using a copy of an ancient sculpture as a point of departure, we ensure that our restorations are as accurate as possible. For examples, click here (the cast of Juno Cesi and its restoration as Urania) or here (the cast of the Lansdowne Hercules and two hypotheses of restoration).
FZP is pleased to make this collection available at no cost to students, scholars, and the general public. We are very grateful to the following museums for permission to digitize objects in their collections: Abguss-Sammlung Antiker Plastik der Freien Universität Berlin, Collection des moulages de l' Université de Genève, Museo dell'Arte Classica of the Sapienza University (Rome), Skulpturhalle Basel.
Note that, if you have a three-button mouse, you can change the lighting on the models. Do so by holding down ALT and the right button of the mouse. If you then move your mouse left or right, the lighting will change.
We do not allow downloads, nor are our models on sale in the Sketchfab store. We are, however, willing to consider licensing a model to you. Our models are available in higher resolution than you will find on our website. If you have an appropriate use in mind, please write us at: email@example.com
We will be adding more models over the coming months.
