Bust of Nefertiti by smorloc Jan 20, 2013


From Wikipedia: <i>The Nefertiti Bust is a 3,300-year-old painted limestone bust of Nefertiti, the Great Royal Wife of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten and one of the most copied works of ancient Egypt. Owing to the work, Nefertiti has become one of the most famous women of the ancient world, and an icon of feminine beauty. The work is believed to have been crafted in 1345 BC by the sculptor Thutmose.</i>

This model was found at: http://www.3dvia.com/models/2F87932537091B2D/nefertiti and converted to STL and made to have a flat base.

It is a fairly low resolution model. I personally like the pronounced visible facets. When printed hollow in a clear filament, the light plays off the facets beautifully.

Because of the significant overhang of the chin, you really need to print this with support for the chin.
