Detail scan of a female face from the Henry Bowen Anthony fountain in Lippit Park at the head of Blackstone Boulevard in Providence RI.

The fountain was installed in 1940 to honor Rhode Island U.S. Senator Henry Bowen Anthony, who served as a U.S. senator (1859 to 1884), Rhode Island governor (1849-1851), and publisher of The Providence Journal. Designed in a modern style by the Providence firm Jackson, Robertson & Adams, the fountain is the centerpiece of Lippitt Park, where Hope Street meets Blackstone Boulevard, near the Pawtucket city line

It was scanned with 123D Catch and the raw scan is available here: http://www.123dapp.com/obj-Catch/Henry-Bowen-Anthony-Fountain--Female-Stone-Face--1/874819

I recommend printing the first file listed: "femaleStoneFace1_Base.stl". It is already rotated with the flat side down. It prints well on my Replicator in yellow Ultimachine PLA at 0.25mm layer height with the default acceleration settings. Extruder temp 220 degrees, HBP 50 degrees.

The scan without the base is included, and is imported by the OpenSCAD file. If you want to modify the OpenSCAD, make sure the "femaleStoneFace1.stl" is in the same directory. If printing the scan without the base, rotate the model so the flat side is facing down on the platform.
