Detail scan of a male face from the Henry Bowen Anthony fountain in Lippit Park at the head of Blackstone Boulevard in Providence RI. It is on the same fountain as these things: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:32113
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--Mans-Face-1/872363
This scan is featured in the "Scanning in 3D" chapter of Getting Started with MakerBot : shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920026723.do?

I recommend printing the first file listed: "maleStoneFace1_Base.stl". It is already rotated with the flat side down. I have not printed this model yet, but I created it the same way I created the other stone faces from the fountain.
The scan without the base is included, and is imported by the OpenSCAD file. If you want to modify the OpenSCAD, make sure the "maleStoneFace1.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.
Note: I just printed this on 10/2/2012 and for some reason this face turned out slightly larger than the other two faces from the same fountain (linked in the description). I will have to see if I did something to scale it up pre OpenSCAD mashup or if it is actually larger in person. I have marked this thing a "Work in Progress" to reflect this development.
