The Other Nefertiti
Newsletter 47 The Nefertiti Hack – Two German artists, Nora Al-Badri and Jan Nikolai Nelles, secretly made a 3D scan of Nefertiti‘s head at the in the Neues Museum in Berlin. It’s the most precise scan ever made public of the original bust of Nefertiti. They used a Microsoft Kinect to capture the 3D data without being noticed – see video below.
