Notes

Color: Greyish brown. View description: Overhead view. Condition: Very good. The 3D model of this object was created under the supervision of Dr. Davide Tanasi.

It was captured from two camera angles, high and straight on. The artifact was sitting upright in the first orientation and upsidedown in the second orientation, stabilized with a foam base. In the third artifact orientation the object was sitting on its nose, supported by a foam base. The 3D model was created using 142 images out of 150 images in Agisoft Photoscan.
