Augustus of Prima Porta Project:

We are grateful to Prof. Martin Boss, Director of the Antikensammlung of the University of Erlangen, for permission to scan the cast of the statue in his collection. The work of 3D data capture and modeling was done by Dip.-Ing. Christiane Bathow of Breuckmann GmbH. We thank her and Dr. rer. nat. Bernd Breuckmann for their many important contributions to this project. The polychromy of the statue was digitally restored by Svyatoslav Gerasymchuk and Matthew Brennan. We are grateful to both for their collaboration. We owe a great debt of gratitude to Prof. Paolo Liverani, the world's leading expert on the statue, for his encouragement and support throughout this project. We thank Prof. Giovanni Verri and Prof. Ulderico Santamaria for the new polychromy studies they undertook on the original in the Vatican, whose results they kindly shared with Prof. Liverani and with our modeling team. Prof. Liverani was our main advisor for creating Model 2; Prof. Verri for Model 3. Finally, we gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the project by the National Endowment for the Humanities (grant nr. HD-51022: "New Digital Tools For Adding Polychromy to Digital Models of Sculpture").
