High Resolution Image Viewer: Powhatan's mantle


Powhatan’s Mantle (leather, shell and sinew; 235x160 cm) is one of the most significant pieces at the Ashmolean Museum (Oxford) and was part of the original Tradescant collection catalogue of 1656.

In May 2017, Factum Foundation carried out the digitisation of this important artefact for the purposes of conservation. During the refurbishment of the mantle’s display case, we had the rare opportunity of recording the surface using photogrammetry; a non-contact high resolution technique.

Factum Foundation has developed a multi-layered browser that enables the visualisation of the scanned relief and colour data of Powhatan's Mantle at an extremely high resolution, allowing the inspection of every single detail from any computer screen.
