The Tamada Warrior - 3D reconstructionYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Men depicted in the “Tamada style” from the Chéïré‐1 painted shelter are shown with rounded coiffures, possibly constituted of a large volume of natural curls (“superafro hairstyle” according to the jargon of American hairdressers). Hair decorations usually include long recumbent feathers, lines of beads and coloured larged dots, which could have been produced in life by smearing hair with coloured clays . The men’s basic garment is a loincloth of various colours, ending with a loose, short band. The most common weapon is a spear with a leaf-shaped sperhead (apparently made of metal). A small rounded shield, sometimes decorated with geometric motifs is often represented aside the warrior. In this rare example, the shield is held by the right hand. The 3D recostruction of the particular painted figure show as a backdrop was carried out in DAZ Studio, using an African morph of the Genesis II human model.
