Fig. 12

Details of original documentation and renderings, visualizing surface height variations of ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’. Top row shows the original documentation, detail of a of raking light photograph (see Fig. 1a), and b crack tracing image (see Fig. 1b). Middle row: rendering of 3D data from 3D digital microscope scan (c) using colour and topography data, and (d) rendered as a matte, white surface. Bottom row: rendering of 3D data from High-Res 3D scan (e) using colour and topography data, and (f) rendered as a matte, white surface. Note that for the renderings the height variations are exaggerated relative to the lateral scale, to increase their visibility
