Bust of Menelaus

Here is another project l did as part of the Scan the world initiative. Based on a 3Dscan of Menelaus. For this project I did the retopo, UV, projection of details, Textures in Substance painter and rendered it for final presentation.
This bust is a modern rework of the bearded soldier in the famous antique Pasquino group. Numerous identifications have been given to the figures, including Ajax carrying the body of Patroclus. However, following an argument proposed by Visconti in 1788, the group is today held to represent Menelaus carrying the dead body of Patroclus.
In Greek mythology, Menelaus was a king of Mycenaean (pre-Dorian) Sparta, the husband of Helen of Troy, and a central figure in the Trojan War. He was the son of Atreus and Aerpe, brother of Agamemnon, king of Mycenae and, according to the Iliad, leader of the Spartan contingent of the Greek army during the War. Scan was produced in collaboration between The Statens Museum for Kunst and Scan the World for the SMK project.
