Fitz 3D Challenge

Medieval wooden sculptures are the focus of a new creative project at the Fitzwilliam Museum.

The 50 sculptures in our collection vary in condition, with some brightly painted, and others stripped of their colours over time. Given very little is known about them - their original appearance, date, provenance and function - the Museum invited Makers around the world to reinvent 6 of the artworks using 3D scans available online from Scan The World (example below).

Makers have been free to reinvent shape, colour, function and context employing a range of technologies in a quest to explore new meanings.
