Corinthian Helmet: Original and RetextureYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
A bronze helmet in the Corinthian style, dated to the 6th century BCE on the basis of comparanda, beside a retexturing of the same model to give an indication of the possible original appearance. The bronze patina familiar from museum objects is a result of corrosion - original bronze objects would have been polished and appear very different.
This style of helmet was the most popular in Archaic and Classical Greece, featuring a projection to cover the nose. There is decroative outlining around the edges of the helmet, which on close inspection features a frieze of dotted circles between two bands. The back of the helmet has two holes, possibly used to fix a crest or leather lining.
The photogrammetry model was compiled in Agisoft Metashape from 543 colour-checked images. Manual editing using Instant Meshes and Blender was used to reduce digital artefacts. The model was then duplicated, with the bumps smoothed and grooves emphaszied, and retextured in Blender using textures from Poly Haven.
