Portrait of the philosopher Pythagoras (?), Roman copy of an original classic period, Italy (?), Marble. Musee d Art et d Histoire (Musee du Cinquantenaire, Brussels, Belgium). Made with CapturingReality.

This bust is a Roman replica of a Greek original from the end of the classical era attributable perhaps to one of the great masters of the time.

    Modern scanner technology is truly amazing. Too bad there's no such thing as auto retopology or an add missing noses button ;-) ...

    Could be added as a different object and it would still be good enough. The new blender stuff that's in the works does have some retopo modifier for this kind of stuff.

    I noticed many of these sculpts don't have the textures you show in these images. Do you have any recommendations on how to achieve the same look you have in the renders? Thank you for these awesome scans.
