A recent project by MonzaMakers has taken the Caravaggio painting ‘The Flagellation of Christ’ and printed it in 3D with texture to show light and dark, shadow and foreground and to mirror the emphasis given in the original work. This high level of detail allows visually impaired visitors to understand the original piece to a far higher level.
Currently on display in Italy beside the original painting, the 3D replica is hoped to be the first of its kind.
