Zooming Into The Boxwood Miniatures With AGO's Lisa Ellis - What She Said Extra

Zooming Into The Boxwood Miniatures With AGO's Lisa Ellis - What She Said Extra

To allow visitors to better explore the impossibly intricate, 500 year-old Boxwood prayer beads and alterpieces, the Art Gallery of Ontario has employed a range of technologies including CT scans, virtual reality, 3D printing, and exploded-view models.

Kris Abel talks with Lisa Ellis, conservator of sculpture and decorative arts, at the opening of Small Wonders: Gothic Boxwood Miniatures to explore the revelations each zooming magnification technology has revealed.

The exhibition will be on until Jan. 22nd 2017
