Girls Gone Wild: A Speculative 3D Rendering of the Lesser Attalid Monument Amazonomachy
MetadataShow full item record
Using the surviving historical and archaeological remains, as well as contemporary stylistic reference, this thesis reconstructs one battle of the lost Lesser Attalid Monument in its entirety. This is done through digital 3D models created in free online software (Blender). The battle chosen is the Amazonomachy, consisting of 24 individual figural sculptures, with main stylistic reference taken from the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the temple of Apollo Bassitas, and the Parthenon Amazonomachy. The intent of the project is to recreate both a sense of the visual reality that existed, as well as the potential emotional impacts it would have had on its audience. The goal is that the final result will be of interest to a wide audience, including art historians, reconstruction specialists, and digital artists. By providing an accurate and interactive reconstruction, this project can act as a base for scholars in several different disciplines to work from.
