Bringing A 400-Year-Old Painting To Life With 3D Software

(YouTube Link)

Rob and Nick Carter have found a rather interesting way to bring a Bosschaert still life painting from 1618  into the 21st century-by using the 3D software package Maya to make models of everything in the scene, then subtly animating the objects in order to bring them to life.

Here's more about the scene:
Every aspect of Bosschaert’s painting has been brought to life including each flower stem, insect and background scenery. The film…takes the painted scene from early morning darkness through to noon (where the film exactly resembles the original painting) into dusk and late night.

The idea of recreating a still life scene in 3D seems a bit odd, but I think the idea could be applied to other paintings and artworks with some rather spectacular results. Wouldn't The Garden Of Earthly Delights by Heironymous Bosch make for an awesome animated scene?
