Due to an ongoing RealityCapture photogrammetry competition, I grabbed the opportunity and by the apropos of this contest I reached the Museum of Marcali, in Hungary to ask for permission by capturing my favorite and most admired dragon related sculpture.
Lucky me I got the permission and the support of the museum to accomplish the scanning.
The sculture it self was made in 1930 as the sign of Master Hikman’s locksmith workshop. The dragon sign is a man-sized iron sculpture
Béla Hikman (1887-1958) was a locksmith, but a true artist was hiding behind the craftsman profession.
The Hikman Dragon belongs to Béla Hikman’s grandchildren and can be visited and seen in the Museum of Marcali.
