J.F. Rogge - Ernst Thälmann Bust

 

Today we bring a bust of the German communist leader Ernst Thälmann, made by the German sculptor J.F. Rogge. The sculptor recognized by his busts and monuments first of the leaders of the German National Socialist and after World War II of the communist leaders. Thus many of his works are elaborated on photographs of the characters portrayed with whom he was not always contemporary.

In this case the sculpture of 1959 portrays Ernst Thälmann fifteen years after his execution and after spending eleven years imprisoned by the Nazi government, after being arrested in 1933.

 

Aladrén, male bust

Emilio Aladrén was a sculptor whose fame is divided between his work and his relationship with the poet Federico García Lorca, whose separation led the Granada poet to New York. His subsequent political alignment would lead to his greatest successes during the Franco dictatorship, portraying the regime's pro-men. In 1944 death overtook him prematurely ending his career with 38 years.

“Unamuno's Head” by Pablo Serrano

Today we bring a sculpture by Pablo Serrano, one of the most important Spanish artists of the 20th century, founder of El Paso (Group), avant-garde movement, which introduces abstract art in postwar Spain. Its international relevance can be seen in the museums that exhibit its work, such as the MoMA or the Guggenheim in New York, the Hirshhorn in Washington, the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Hermitage in St. Petersburg or the Vatican Galleries and in all relevant collections of modern art in Spain.

Benllurie - Bust of a Lady

This week we published a bust of the Spanish Mariano Benlliure, the last master of nineteenth-century realist sculpture in Spain. The bust portrays a lady of the Spanish high society of 1909, when it was portrayed in this marble of 19.5 x 23 cm base and 48 in height.

Mao Zedong - Ceramic

This time a pottery of the Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong. The cult of the figure of this leader has bequeathed us innumerable representations of the same as a man of the people, so at the base we find the motto "at the service of the people" "为人民服务".

The cult of Mao promoted by Lin Biao was one of the bases of the cultural revolution and at that time it was usual to find its image in all kinds of buildings, shops and homes throughout China. Even today his image is common in the halls of many households in rural areas.

Sculptures like these were created all over the country and are easy to find in any antique business or even new copies in art and ceramic stores.

“Aprendiz” by Jerónimo Suñol

Today we present bust of an "apprentice" of the sculptor Jerónimo Suñol, one of the most important sculptors of his time in Spain. The sculpture is made in the stage of artistic refinement in Rome in 1878 and cast in bronze later in Barcelona. This small bust measures 43 cm high on the marble base and 22 x 21 cm in plan.

Adam by Rodin

Our second piece for this sculpture collection is a miniature of Rodin's Adam. This piece of smaller scale than the original, 56cm, seems to be a pre-test to the sculpture of Adam finally made in 1881 to place on the sides of "The Gates of Hell". Although it seems that before this assignment, Rodin already had exposed like "the creation of the man".

Juan Bordes, Sculpture

Today in our blog we start a new series of articles with sculptures that we have scanned in 3D. With this initiative we want to continue sharing from Moøkan our work, especially in the field of cultural diffusion and promotion. Thanks to the agreement with some of our clients we will share some of the sculptures of their private collections giving public access to them in a digital environment.

We have chosen to start, the most contemporary of this series. A complete body of sculptor and architect Juan Bordes, A 46 cm piece in bronze lacquered in white.

Photo-sculpture and Photogrammetry a 150 year leap

Photogrammetry is a modern technique of digital capture of real models, which we have already talked about in this blog. Technique we work on rebuilding sculptures or buildings. This technique analyzes a group of photos of a model from different points of view and with them and many triangulation operations we obtain an automatic model in 3D.

Virtual Hall 1.2.14 Updated!

Firstly from Moøkan we want to thank all those who have downloaded our Application: Virtual Hall, especially to all those who have offered us their comments and suggestions.

Today thanks to these generous contributions we launched an update to improve the experience of our virtual exhibition hall. With significant improvements especially in the user interface (UI).

Below the list of the improvements made:

Virtual Hall: Download it and try The Experience!

At MooKan we are convinced that the future of communications goes beyond text, image or video; We believe that the virtual experiences with their multiple options of freedom and interaction are the solution that will complement the existing media taking them to a new level.

That is why today we have taken an important step. After publishing some articles and descriptions, images and videos of our works, today we launched the first free virtual experience, so you can prove for yourself what 3D Real Time brings over other media.

Moøkan in Snaptank

In Moøkan we have joined the Snaptank, this 3D scan community, to commercialize our photogrammetry models in a high quality version for professional use. We took the decision after being asked by some users about the original or more detailed version of the models we freely share in Sketchfab.

We hope you find these high definition models useful and we will be glad to hear your comments.

We start with the following two models:

The church of La Asunción  - Snaptank 

Villalonso´s Castle

On this article we are going to talk about these two new 3D models created by drone photogrammetry, where we can appreciate the Villalonso´s castle, on one with the surroundings and on the other with more detail. We share a free light version through Sketchfab, ideal to visualize it from the smartphone with a low consumption data, while the complete version is available for sale on Snaptank.

The Church of La Asunción in San Vicente del Valle

The Church of the Asunción (before known as Saint Mary's Church) in San Vicente del Valle, Burgos. The nave is one of the best preserved buildings of the pre Romanesque architecture in Spain. This church is dated at the end of the VI century a.c. and is in a dominant position in the high valley of the Tirón River between La Sierra de la Demanda and Los Montes de Ayago.

Dragons from Tian Hou Temple

After a visit to the Tian Hou Temple, Shekou, Shenzhen, we have create two new examples of photogrammetry models. The temple is a reconstruction of one of the most ancient buildings of what today is Shenzhen, a temple dedicated to TianHou the Mother Of Heaven and goddess of the Sea. The legend says it was built to show gratitude to the goddess for saving the great flee of the famous admiral ZhengHe around the year 1410. From that date the temple has been rebuilt many times, the last one in the 90's of last century. 

Moøkan at Sketchfab

We love Sketchfab, and we would like to share it with you. Sketchfab is a website to share 3D models as we share video in Youtube or Vimeo. It is a light 3D engine on the web that is perfect to show 3D models and sites. It is a fantastic tool for artists and it is becoming popular also for museums, to share their collections with all the world. Some models can be downloaded to share the 3D files, so other artists can use them for their own creations.
