Re: An Immodest Proposal for using paleoart to help suppress fossil poaching

Creating a one of a kind 3D print, and bronze from that print would be an 

  Question.  Before these things go to auction does anyone do high res scans of 
them?  Much art could be made of a 3D scan, in any size a customer could want.
Worst case scenario, if the bones were auctioned off would really good 3D data 
at least help?
