This isn’t a joke.
“The Mona Lisa” has been faithfully reproduced in 3D with sophisticated printers to allow blind people to touch this wonderful piece of art.
To succeed was the team Unseen Art , headed by the Finnish designer Marc Dillon, who recently has decided to promote a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to get the necessary funds to establish a large open-source platform to involve people from all over the world to recreate classical art paintings in 3D so that they may be touched and felt, both in exhibitions and in people’s homes.”
The goal of Mark is to make art accessible to all people; he says:
There are many people in the world who have heard of classical artworks their whole lives but are unable to see them. Now they can experience them for the first time and create their own impressions and opinions.
If you want to give your contribution and get a 3D print of the Mona Lisa, you can go to Indiegogo website and support this wonderful initiative.
In my spare time I write for my art blog called Martineken and I keep pursuing my interest by doing graphic concepts and mock-ups.
