Statue of the Sealer Nemtihotep Seated Replica
This 3D printed replica of the Statue of the Sealer Nemtihotep Seated, better known as the Nemtihotep, and is an ancient Egyptian statue and one of the most famous works of ancient Egyptian sculpture.
With the Middle Kingdom, a new factor emerged that had a strong influence on and stimulating Egyptian art: the desire for representation. This desire is documented in both the royal and private sculpture. Although most of the private statues are still made for the grave, private individuals are now permitted to erect statues in temples with royal approval, in order to be represented in front of the gods, but also to publicly emphasize the social status of the owner . This possibility as well as the precise study of physiognomy and anatomy result in works of exceptional quality, through the perfection of which the art of the Middle Kingdom was still regarded as "classical art" in later times and was a stimulating model. In the late 12th Dynasty followed, based on examples from the Old Kingdom, the "rediscovery" of the strongly personal portrait of old age. From now on, the human face drawn by life is the focus of the representations. Portraits full of individual features emerge, which in private portraits, despite all portraits, must be viewed as portraits of types, as they were certainly based on the portrait of a king. The figure of the landlord Chertihotep also shows these characteristic features that can be found in the portraits of kings from this time.

This is a 3D printed product, so there may be minor defects (rough edges, bumps, etc). I have spent months building my own machines to exact specifications for accuracy and surface quality, and I scrutinize every model very closely. I use only the highest quality filament to ensure colors are vibrant and defects are kept to an absolute minimum for both your item and my machine. Every item in my shop is test printed and checked for not only aesthetics, but also the intended use. If I'm not happy with it, it doesn’t ship. You will get my very best work, which you will find is a cut above the rest!
POLYLACTIC ACID (PLA PLASTIC)
Every item in my shop is made from Polylactic Acid (PLA), which is a non-toxic organic thermo-polymer made from corn starch or sugarcane and is industrially compostable under very specific and expensive conditions. It will not break down if buried or submerged in water and will last for a very, very long time. 3DPD makes every effort to repurpose and transform waste plastics such as support material and failed prints. One example of this is that our PLA waste is ground up into shards and suspended in the filled and premium bust product lines. Additionally, in-house colors such as black make use of a small percentage of waste plastics to recycle them. Anyone that makes the claim that PLA is “eco-friendly” or “biodegradable” is simply misinformed and has copy/pasted the erroneous marketing materials made available by the manufacturers. 3DPD will aspire to reduce, repurpose, recycle, or upcycle its waste streams and prevent as much material as possible from being sent to the landfill, and a portion of your purchase will be used to fund this ongoing research and development.
