Clavius in 3D

Clavius is one of the largest and oldest craters on the Moon, 140 miles across in the southern hemisphere.. When we talk of 3D art nowadays we usually mean digital, but this really IS 3D – the craters are deep and sculpted, as well as painted with highlights and shadows, and the Moon’s surface is curved. I’ve shown the original block and the framed piece.
