See the 3D Giants
For the first time on the web, you can view the navigable 3D models of the entire sculpture complex of Mont’e Prama.
The general directorate for Cultural Heritage, Information, Entertainment and Sport of the Region of Sardinia has entrusted CRS4 (Center for Advanced Studies, Research and Development in Sardinia) with making a simplified geometry version, suitable for use via the web, of the high-definition 3D models created by CRS4, at the request of the Superintendence for Archaeological Heritage for the provinces of Cagliari and Oristano, for the exhibition of the Mont’e Prama statues at the ‘Giovanni Marongiu’ civic museum of Cabras and the National archaeological museum of Cagliari.
The original 3D models can be viewed in high definition and full size through the multimedia stations at the ‘Giovanni Marongiu’ civic museum of Cabras and the National archaeological museum of Cagliari.
