Probably by people like me (I do portrait relief work from photos the old
fashioned way‹by hand.) I am very interested in working with rp & m systems
and would like to hear whatever surfaces in the realm or portraiture.

Subject: 3D Faces on Russian Gravestones

On a recent CNN presentation on Afghanistan, there were several scenes where
USSR soldiers killed during the war were brought home and buried in Russia.
We noticed that several of the gravestones had a 3D face of the buried
soldier along with the typical lettering that you see on a gravestone. The
3D face and the lettering appeared to be in a cast metal and were secured to
the gravestone.
Does anyone on the list know how the 3D information for the soldiers is
derived and how are the 3D faces fabricated?
