Greek Helmet/ armour database
#46
When I saw this after my hollidays I was very exited. And now I'm very disappointed about the possible failure. I hope Ralph will rejoin the project. In the Inet some comments can be easily misunderstood or given to much meaning. Some times you will find remarks that you don't have to take too seriously. I for my part for example was a bit shocked that Germany is seemingly in the range of China and North Korea, when freedom rights are discussed... :wink: Big Grin

This is too good an idea to let fail, and Ralph, if I can borrow some of your American freedom of speech, 'quit being such a wuss, and get back on board!!' :lol:

I have a picture of a corinthian which I think dates to far earlier than the place which exibits it says, but as I was not supposed to take pictures, I will need to get in touch with the woman fron the archaology section to ask for permission to give it to you guys!

I am glad that you say this, because I was starting to wonder whether my observation (not mine in fact, but a common one in Wired when the web was still very young) was incomprehensible. I still wonder how a simple description of a well-known fact -information moves to places where it feels at ease- can cause such a stir. Whatever the reason, it was certainly not my intention to offend anyone, and if I have said something that is offensive, I apologize.

Well forgeting the ding dang mistunderstanding, this is how I would like to see the approaching of greek helmet reconstruction into 3d or aproximetly.

My soft go close to that or can do that, but I bet this is a time comsuming one for its details.

Wow Gioi. That's really nice, but don't you think that's a little much for such a database?

No..no!....I meant just the helmets... modeling something extra like a human body etc, yes its not needed Smile

And with the ability of being rotated?Even if not,it is an excellent model.With the knowledge of our members and with photos of the real thing this could be outstanding!

You are quite right Paul :oops:

BTW: what kind of rotation 3d you all refering too?

Do you meant:

1) just a videoclip showing the helmet in all drection... or

2) a format that allows u to play with the ittem free?

for example I made some question & response about this subjec here:
PS: again no mic :evil:

I just returned from a small journey and was very disappointed what happened in the meantime...
Ralph, because of his obviously deep knowledge of archaeological classification systems, would have been an extraordinary important part of the team, which still does not excist I fear (what about Dan?).
I'm still very interested in the project and recently think about the way the excisting typologies can be used to fill the necessary tab-fields in a practical way.
I will soon post how I imagine this and we can discuss it.

I don't want to push forward myself but I think we simply have to start the project and possibly a team of 3 or 4 will finally grow out of the members.

I have tried contacting Ralph privately, but no luck so far......Dan seems to have disappeared (vacation? Illness? )

I heartily agree !! Smile D )

I see you have showcased your skills well ! Doubtless our project can make good use of them...consider yourself conscripted !! In a perfect world I would envisage several views of each original helmet, such as the one Gioi just posted on the 'Alexander Illustration' thread, and then maybe an animated reconstruction by someone such as yourself or our other talented people.....as per your sample.
