      THE "VENUS OF WILLENDORF" PROJECT      
             
             


STONE AGE ART MEETS ES-CAGE PRINTING


This statuette was found in 1908 during excavations in Willendorf (Austria).

It has been dated to +/- 28.000 BC, making it the oldest artefact ever found

showing a human form. It is about 11 cm high (4,4 inches).

Made from limestone and coloured with red ochre, this statuette depicts a

woman with very round forms. It has been named “Venus of Willendorf”,

but of course it is much older than the ancient Greek civilization.


In 2018 Erik Es decided to transform a 3D scan of this object using a new

3D printing technique he invented in 2016, called “Es-Cage Printing”.

With this technique it is possible to 3D print objects which are very strong

and very light. Es-Cage prints can be printed much faster than “solid” prints.

He likes the idea that some Stone Age person carved this object 30.000

years ago, not knowing that it would become such a famous piece.

In this project “Venus” meets modern times to create a new form of beauty.
