Creating a replica of the work

 

Replica of Nero and Seneca, by Eduardo Barrón, in Córdoba

Digital scanning process

The sculpture had previously been on deposit with the Town Hall of Cordoba and the City Council wished to possess a version, so a replica was made of it. Given that the original was made of polychrome plaster, the traditional reproductive method involving direct moulds was completely impossible due to the high risk of loss to the colours and surface textures.

A replica was thus made using digital scanning, in which an exact resin model is created through a 3-dimensional image from which a mould is made. The resulting replica cast from the mould is now to be seen on the Glorieta del Pretorio in Cordoba.
