Galatea and 4 Tritons from Brandenburg 3D Scan

This statue of the Nereid Galatea is part of a group of figures on Brandenburg Cathedral Island. The water creature is accompanied by 4 tritons and was created in the 17th century. The quality of the figures suggests the influence of the Baroque sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini,

The group of figures was first erected in Brandenburg at the beginning of the 20th century. After standing unnoticed for a long time, the figures were restored and placed centrally on the cathedral island.

The Nereid and her 4 companions were recorded using photogrammetry. The data was then processed and rendered in Blender 3D.
