The sculpture was scanned on July 28th, 2013. Basing on the obtained data, 3D model was created and optimized in Agisoft Photoscan. In the next step, textures were created from photos taken on February 25th, 2018. Serious differences have been detected between models from 2013 and 2018. The sculpture was dismantled and moved to the other place between these years. The front upper-right corner and the element from left side of sandstone (seen now as improperly reconstructed deep hole) were both missing now. The marble boulder above has changed the orientation (a skew) in relation to the sculpture. The monument has ben also cleaned and the moss was removed from the stone.
Due to problems of DSM algorithm, another photographic session was performed on March 18th, 2018. Both sessions from year 2018 were used to produce the texture. The point cloud from photos was used to create the model, except from the brown crown at the very top of the boulder, which was reconstructed from laser scanning. The obtained model has been scaled and oriented in CloudCompare to fit the sculpture measured in 2013 with a laser scanner.
The obtained model is highly detailed, although the reconstruction of the upper crown is imprecise, despite using a ladder during measurements. Bright spots on sides of the sandstone around details of the sculpture are related to differing camera settings. In fact, all sides of sandstone have practically the same brightness. The texture therefore requires manual correction.
