This Chimera stone statue was photographed by Oliver with an iphone at the
RISD in Providence,
then processed with Catch 123
cleaned up a bit with meshlab, then imported into Mathematica: here are the 3D files: |

It rested on top of a tall pillar leading to the tomb of a member of one of the ruling families at Nanjing. It was created during the years 475-524 and is so 1500 years old.
Update: January 14, 2016: First the picture from the museum, then a printout from Shapeways and finally a much simplified mesh colored: click for a larger picture.
