I dedicate my account to the valorisation of art pieces ,in danger, destructed or underestimated, rarely shown or not avaiable in 3d.
The Sargon mask of the akkadian king is dated 2334–2284 BC, this means it was approximately 5000 years from us . Unfortunately , the Us-Army let the robbers and islamists destruct it in pieces in 2003. Only some pictures remains and the only negatives remaining are in a low format. no 4x5 inches negative exists. This model has been made with photogrametry. the model was just a help for reconstructing it with imagine3d and finalised with lightwave 3d. The model will apperar very small despite it is measured as 36 cm in lightwave so you will have to resize it.
