New statue unveiled
THOUSANDS of people gathered in the centre of York last week to greet King Charles III as he unveiled a new statue of his late mother Queen Elizabeth II at York Minster.
The seven-foot-tall statue, which has been designed and carved by York stonemason Richard Bossons, was originally commissioned to mark the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
By kind permission of the Chapter of York, we are able to share that as part of the design process, MSL provided 3D Scanning technology utilising the Creaform Go!SCAN.
This enabled the Maquette to be scaled up and cut into a block of dense polyurethane at Abbey Masonry in South Wales, which then formed the base structure for Richard to produce the detailed full size model.
We are privileged to have been a part of this project and grateful that we were also able to attend this very significant moment in the history of York and of the nation.
Please get in touch if you would like to learn more about the 3D Scanning element of this project.
