Japanese contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama is known for her whimsical pumpkin sculptures, that have come to represent for her a kind of alter-ego or self-portrait. This sculpture stands just under a meter tall, and was displayed as part of a temporary exhibition at the 2014 Frieze Sculpture Park in London, England where it was scanned by photogrammetry, which captured the polkadot texture.
This object is part of “Scan The World” on MyMiniFactory. I scaled it down 30% just to save time, but I’m planning to hollow out the “spots” and add a light inside.
This was a first run of Eryone Steampunk Rainbow PLA Filament, which has a shiny finish that has a sort of light brown/bronze colour. It turned out alright, but you don’t get the colour change effect implied by their marketing materials.
Jenni painted it to match the original sculpture with black spots. Looks really nice after post processing.
