Feline Waterspout on Etruscan Temple Eaves 3D Model
Make sure to check out the extended version of this model with interactive functionality on our website.
Etruscan and Greek temples had richly decorated roofs. This is a reconstruction of a roof tile with attached feline waterspout and decorated revetment plaque. It was built around a 3D scan of surviving fragment of such a spout.
The scanned object is part of a group of almost 300 fragments of architectural terracottas that in the 6th century BC belonged to a temple at the modern site of Caprifico near Cistern di Latina, in central Italy. Only the upper right half of the head was preserved. It is clearly a feline creature, perhaps specifically a lioness. The entire temple of Caprifico was reconstructed in 2012-2013.
The scan was made with a DAVID structured light 3D scanner. The reconstruction modelling and texturing was done with Blender.
