Janna WII of the frieze, Basel, Polychromed 3D Model
This is my final polychromed model of West block II of the Parthenon frieze. It was reconstructed in photoscan from photographs of thwe Basel casts at Skulpturhalle. I polychromed it based off of what we learned about color primarily from Verri, Wescoat & Levitan, and Neils, among others. The bumpy areas in the upper right and lower left quadrant (by the leg of the gray horse) are due to manipulated geometry - the casts are broken off in those corners, and when attempting the flatten out the geometry, a strange texture gets added. I tried multiple methods to fix it and this was the smoothest looking solution. The horses bridles are painted on - when I added geometry to add these features, it distorted the apperance of the rest of the image.
