Building A-2, Group II, Holmul (photogrammetry) 3D Model
A 26-foot-long frieze in the city-state of Holmul depicts a complex religious scene with an inscription that suggests close ties with the Snake dynasty. The central figure is the Holmul king who died around 590 and was buried in the tomb the frieze adorns. You can learn more about the frieze, its significance, and historical context in this recent National Geographic article: http://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2016/09/maya-empire-snake-kings-dynasty-mesoamerica/ (3-D MODEL BY ALEXANDRE TOKOVININE, CMHI, PEABODY MUSEUM OF ARCHAEOLOGY AND ETHNOLOGY, HARVARD UNIVERSITY) A larger 3D model based on a 3D scan is also available via Sketchfab: https://skfb.ly/Pyttg
