Egypt Unveils 3D Printed Replica of Tutankhamun’s Tomb

(Independent) Tutankhamun’s tomb has been replicated with a 3D printed exact facsimile in a project led by a British artist in order to protect the original site from the ravages of mass tourism. The artist, Adam Lowe, said the replica was of crucial importance to the preservation of the original 3,245-year-old burial chamber, which receives up to 1,000 visitors a day in a space 60m square. Lowe’s company Factum Arte used digital photography, 3D laser scanning and printers to precisely recreate the murals on the walls of the burial chamber, depicting scenes from the young pharaoh’s journey to the afterlife. The replica tomb was so accurate that some Tutankhamun experts among the Egyptologists and dignitaries burst into tears while attending the opening in Luxor.
