Captured from the American Museum of Natural History with 123D Catch. Edited and print ready.

From the display at AMNH - the description refers to a model of the Temple of the Sun - this scan is a fragment from it:
"The model below portrays the so-called Temple of the Sun at Palenque, a famous site known for the elegance of its architecture and for the stucco sculpture decorating its buildings. Palenque temples have an unusual sanctuary in the form of a small building at the back of the inner room, and a sloping mansardlike roof. Also typical is the crestlike structure on the roof, known as a roof comb, that gives the building added height and apparently served as a base for stucco sculpture. Fragements remain of the sculpture that also covered the sloping roof panels."


The STL is print ready, the OBJ file is the unedited scan, and the zip file contains the photosets and scene files. Another successful catch from an object in a glass case!
