Abstract

The article deals with the problems of museum preservation and scientific use of collections of estampages (paper squeezes) made in the early 20th century by A.V. Adrianov from rock engravings on the Yenisei river basin. These collections are kept in the Department of Archeology of the MAE RAS and document petroglyphs, many of which have already been lost. At the same time, the condition of the estampages itselves cannot be called satisfactory. To preserve these unique materials, facilitate remote access of researchers to it, expand research possibilities and reconstruct lost engravings, it is proposed to create digital images of paper squeezes in the form of threedimensional models. Article describes the experience of experimental documentation of a sample set of 10 estampages using the three-dimensional modeling, analyzes the particularities of applying the method to this specific type of material, provides examples of rendering the geometry of models using mathematical algorithms.

 

Key words: rock art, documenting, 3D modeling, estampages (paper squeezes), A.V. Adrianov, photogrammetry, surface rendering.
