Here’s a great video of a Dea Nutrix, or Roman Nursing Goddess, found in Canterbury and kept at the Canterbury Roman Museum. It’s narrated by Ray Laurence from the University of Kent’s School of European Culture and Languages – the principle partner on the Roman Museum Residency project.
It was made by laser scanning the artefact and then creating a 3D-printed version, which was given to Cognitive (of RSA Animate fame) to animate. The results are incredible, bringing the figure to life whilst Ray’s commentary provides fascinating insight.
It’s a beautiful artefact, and I will be carrying a 3D-printed version of it on my walk from Shooters Hill to Canterbury. Watch the video below!
