“Abraham Lincoln” by Martin Dawe, 21st century. This statuette honors President Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth president of the United States. Specifically, the state of Georgia played a role in Lincoln’s re-election during the campaign of 1864, as the success of General William Tecumseh Sherman and the Army of the West during the Atlanta campaign and March to the Sea removed any lingering doubts of Lincoln’s resolve for a Union victory during the American Civil War.

3D reproduction of the Statue of Zeus at Olympia. The Statue of Zeus at Olympia, considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, was completed circa 435 BCE. Commissioned by Pericles of Athens and created by his good friend Phidias of Athens, the Statue of Zeus stood more than 40 feet tall and depicted the king of the Olympian gods seated on his throne, with his staff in one hand - his eagle perched atop it - and Nike, the goddess of victory, standing on his other hand. Despite being constructed from gilded wood and ivory, the statue stood until the 5th century CE, and was regarded as the finest statue of Zeus that the Mediterranean world had ever seen. This replica of the statue stands at 6 feet tall - the approximate height of Nike in the original - with the throne made from wood and Zeus, Nike, Zeus’s eagle, and the other high-detail pieces being 3D printed.
