Temple of the Sun Fragment

3D model description

Captured from the American Museum of Natural History with 123D Catch. Edited and print ready.

From the display at AMNH - the description refers to a model of the Temple of the Sun - this scan is a fragment from it:
"The model below portrays the so-called Temple of the Sun at Palenque, a famous site known for the elegance of its architecture and for the stucco sculpture decorating its buildings. Palenque temples have an unusual sanctuary in the form of a small building at the back of the inner room, and a sloping mansardlike roof. Also typical is the crestlike structure on the roof, known as a roof comb, that gives the building added height and apparently served as a base for stucco sculpture. Fragements remain of the sculpture that also covered the sloping roof panels."

Love 3D printing and geography!
