Blaschka Sea Anemone 3D Model
Model SC64 of the Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology Collection of Blaschka Marine Invertebrates. This is an ~3.5-inch glass model of a sea anemone (“Tealia crassicornis var. purpurea, per the Ward Catalog of 1878). The glass model is one of thousands done by the father-and-son team Rudolf and Leopold Blaschka in the late 1800s. Originally made as educational models, they are now in collections in over 50 institutions including Cornell, the Corning Glass Museum, Harvard and University College, Dublin. The model was made from 312 photographs with processing by Agisoft Photoscan and touch-up in Blender. The white arms were a challenge, both due to their frosted, semi-transparent glass and also to the thick cross sections which hid many of the surfaces. (model # A1-asc-hi4-dec4b)
