Digital Lion Shrine 3

Digital Lion Shrine 3

A red laser imaging dot moves across the left hind paw of the Nittany Lion statue at the Lion Shrine. Kyle Herr, a metrologist with Survice Metrology, did the scanning. The engineering measurement and modeling firm contracted to digitally construct a model of the Lion statue so Penn State will have a way to reconstruct the statue if it sustains any damage. Over the life-span of the shrine, the lion has had to have its right ear replaced tree times, twice because of vandalism.
