Joseph in 3D
Using a photogrammetric scan of Joseph's death mask, I have sculpted a bust of Joseph that accurately captures his appearance in three dimensions. The death mask was not altered beyond opening the eyes and adding eyebrows, ensuring little artistic license was taken. The head was shaped to match a photo of his skull, with tissue depth accounted for. His hair and clothing were carefully matched to two paintings done while Joseph was alive and posing for them, ensuring historical accuracy. The final product is a bust that incorporates every available point of reference to accurately depict Joseph as he really was.
I have printed a scaled model in resin, and have hired a talented artist to paint the bust. When the painted bust is complete, I will include it below.
