Venus de Milo, Digitized

In 2005, Konica Minolta used a laser measuring instrument to scan 3D data from the famous statue of Venus de Milo at the Louvre. They then used the data to re-create the statue digitally:

Recreating the Venus de Milo on our computers allowed us to make a very detailed examination of all aspects of the sculpture. We were able to see things invisible to the naked eye, and to visualize possible shapes and poses of the original statue.

I normally don't like Flash websites, but this one is very neat: Link - via eternallycool
