Description

This is a beautiful statue of Amphitrite, a nereide, wife of Poseidon, God of the sea.

It is located in the great hall of the Centre de Commerce Mondial in downtown Montreal.

Press 'P' and admire the almost solid point cloud.

I shot this synth with my iPhone and I'm pretty pleased with the result.

The statue was sculpted and displayed in France in the first half of the 18th century. It has recently been moved to Montreal.

The Centre de Commerce Mondial de Montréal (CCMM) (Montreal World Trade Center), at 747 Square Victoria, is a 10-storey complex formed of an old city block between 1988-1991 by the architectural firms Roy Provencher, Gersovitz Becker Moss, and Arcop. The renovated buildings, including the remarkable Nordheimer Building (1888), are interconnected by a vast glass-covered atrium, formerly Ruelle des Fortifications (Fortification Lane).

The Centre features a fragment of the Berlin Wall and a black granite reflecting pool. Connected to the underground city and Square-Victoria metro station, it houses 1.3 million square-feet of office and retail space including the Montreal InterContinental Hotel.

Thanks Shail,

Indeed, the overhead view is a nice addition to PhotoSynth.

For those of you who have an iPhone or iPod Touch, go and try iSynth on the AppStore (free). It's a great PhotoSynth client for the iPhone and its Orbit/Show Cameras option is even better than overhead view.

Enjoy.
