Description:

Polyhymnia, Monte Calvo, 2nd century A.D., Marble, Nye Carlsberg Glyptotek (Copenhagen, Denmark). Made with Memento Beta. The rotating movement emphasised by the right hand holding her cloak shows that the woman is dancing. She is Polyhymnia, the Muse of Dance. Polyhymnia ("the one of many hymns"), also spelt Polymnia was in Greek mythology the Muse of sacred poetry, sacred hymn, dance, and eloquence as well as agriculture and pantomime. She is depicted as very serious, pensive and meditative, and often holding a finger to her mouth, dressed in a long cloak and veil and resting her elbow on a pillar. Polyhymnia is also sometimes credited as being the Muse of geometry and meditation. (Wikipedia)

    It must be some misunderstanding from your part. This is a 3D scan of sculpture made 23 centuries ago... At it is written in the text below. Cheers

    Personally I didn't know that 'Memento Beta' is for 3D scanning although I guess you did.

    Might be nice if you started tagging these as '3D Scan'.

    I think the 'Sculpture' tag has a different meaning for Blenderheads.

    Memento is for 3D reconstruction from picture. But I understand the confusion about sculpture as it could have another meaning for some people. I just stick to the dictionary.
