The Gran Riparo d’Archeï (Archeï VII) 3D Model
The “Gran Riparo d’Archeï” first reported by Faleschini et al. (1994), is a spectacular decorated shelter, located in the southern sector of the Ennedi highland, about five km south-west of the famed Archeï Guelta. Also known as Archeï VII, is fifty meters wide, up to twelve meters deep in the middle, and twenty-two meters high at the vault culmination. The shelter is exposed due south. Paintings and petroglyphs are concentrated on the slightly overhanging surface of a sandstone head-bed outcropping along the eastern side of the shelter. The collection of pictures used in the scanning process includes a contribution by Gábor Merkl. The measuring grid, shown for reference on the left (western) side of the shelter is 2x2 meters (the unit square is 0.5x0.5 m).
