There are actually 2 more doughnuts - one on the back foot and another on the front foot

Fred_Oxford (Over 1 year ago)
Great synth, and now the point cloud is up there with the best - perfect 3D image of the dragon. 5 rotation doughnuts - excellent work!

" the unique brilliance of the colours, such as the amber and jadeite greens and the golden reds , have been appreciated increasingly with each passing generation." the are some interesting items on some websites, but to best appreciate the variety, and sophistication it is best to visit Taiwan.

Fred_Oxford (Over 1 year ago)
A quote from a leading Taiwanese merchant: "Cochin ceramics, a very special art from of Taiwan.Cochin ceramics are distinguished by brightly coloured multi-layer glazes fired at relatively low temperature ( about 900℃ ). The word 'Cochin' is derived from the Japanese word 'Koji' , the name given by Japanese traders to an area in southern china-notably Fujian and Guangdong provinces-and Vietnam , where these ceramics originated some 300 years ago for use in japan as incense holders and in tea ceremonies. The art form entered Taiwan during the reign of the Tao kuang emperor (1821-1850) and were used to adorn temples with life-like legendary figures, mythical beasts , birds and animals . the production process relies on the ingenuity of the craftsman to select , filter , mould , shape , dry , and fire the clay with multi-level glazes, so combining the skills of construction , design , imagery and clay firing into one artifact." continued...

Cochin is indeed the style of figurine. It is a traditional Taiwanese style, and (I think) no one else knows the techniques they use to make them.

What exactly is a "Cochin"? Some style of porcelain figurine? P.S. nice work again.

Thanks, Darius and Fred. I have a few more cochin sculptures (the dragon, the monkey, the pig and the dog). I might make a synth on one or those sometime.

dariusmonsef (Over 1 year ago)
Yes, this one is even better. Nice work!

Fred_Oxford (Over 1 year ago)
I can rotate its head, body, front legs and tail all separately - incredible!

Fred_Oxford (Over 1 year ago)
Cardinal!!! You have excelled yourself...this has to be one of the best photosynths ever made!! The point cloud is incredible, and I count at least 4 rotation points (doughnuts)

Thanks houdan. I had just been watching a match of Mudby (the wet form of Rugby). It was Bath against Toulouse (Score: 3-3) and as I came out, I saw this... I took some nice pictures, but I only realised today that the really spectacular side of the Abbey is on the opposite side I was photographing!

houdan (Over 1 year ago)

Fred_Oxford (Over 1 year ago)
