Life Size 3-D Printed Stargate On Display At Museum

September 1, 2016

This is the life-size (6.7-meter, ~22-foot) 3-D printed Stargate on display outside the Royal Museum of Mariemont in Belgium. It was commissioned by the museum itself for an exhibition titled 'From Stargate to Comics: The Egyptian Gods in the Geek Culture.' That sounds like a pretty interesting exhibition. The gate took over 1,000 man-hours and 10,000 cuts to produce the 2,000 individual pieces needed to construct. And to deconstruct? One man on bath salts swinging a no parking sign.

The exhibition will propose to address and further develop this inspiration in recent years through film (Stargate, The Mummy Returns, Immortal Ad Vitam, or the highly anticipated X-Men: Apocalypse) but also through comics and comics (Thor, Batman, Mighty Isis, Wonder Woman, the Avengers, Apocalypse, Shazam, Fantastic 4 ...; so many characters of DC Comics franchises, Marvel also Vertigo) or through video games/ board games and role playing games (Age of Mythology, Pathfinder, Deus ...).

But will there be any tasteful nudes on exhibit? There are two things I look for at a museum: dinosaurs, and tasteful nudes. Without them the field trip is pretty much ruined for me, I don't care what kind of brown-bag lunch the teacher gives us. *opens sandwich, peels off slimy deli ham* I THOUGHT MY MOM CHOSE THE VEGETARIAN OPTION.

Keep going for a video of the gate's construction.

Thanks to Ethylene, hands down one of my favorite hydrocarbons.

    Why? That game sucked. Of all the stupid shitty games I've played on Sega Game Gear that was by far the worst.

    Who said anything about a game? I'm just a huge fan of all three television series.
