This is not my scan nor my model. I found this 3D model on myminfactory from "Scan The World". It prints out great and i thought I would share it here on thingiverse.

Info From Wiki about statue.

Thuner, the god of thunder, is one of the seven Saxon gods, each representing a day of the week. It was carved circa 1730 for Sir Richard Temple, Viscount Cobham (1675-1749) for his garden in Stowe, Buckinghamshire. On the base of the sculpture, Thuner's name is carved in runes beneath a thunderbolt. Originally the statues were set around an altar in an open grove, known as the Saxon Temple at Stowe; later they were placed in Stowe's Gothic Temple of Liberty. They formed part of an important group of buildings and statuary erected by Lord Cobham during the 1730s, which embodied a political programme championing Whig beliefs in historic British liberty.

Rysbrack was one of the most important sculptors working Britain at this time. A native of the Netherlands, he came over to England in about 1720, and soon established himself as a sculptor of monuments, portraits and busts. The Saxon gods, however, are unique in his work; neither are similar figures known by any other sculptors.

Creator

I design props and costumes mostly. I am not an engineer nor a trained artist. I learned almost everything from watching Youtube videos and just messing around in designing software. I started designing with Fusion 360 in August 2016. I'm still pretty new at designing but I have learned a lot about Fusion 360 and designing. I want to share what I have learned so I started a Patreon page. Also I receive too many requests here to make stuff so I had to limit my requests to my patrons.

On my patreon page:

1) I will take requests on making models from my patrons. Since I get too many request here on thingiverse, I need to narrow down the requests. I mostly make Helmets, masks, and other cosplay items. Also since I am still new I can not make everything.

2) I just started adding tutorial videos available to my patrons. These will be about how I design in Fusion 360. Patrons can also request specific topics.

3) Ultimately I want to get a group of people who want to learn together and share their knowledge so we can make awesome things together .
