Chachapoyan Fertility Idol from Raiders of the Lost Ark

“Dr. Jones. Again we see there is nothing you can possess which I cannot recreate with plastic filament and paint.” (ht McKrats)

Who hasn’t acted out the iconic boulder scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark, imitating Indiana Jones, the coolest archaeologist (and part time space scoundrel/hero)? I printed this in three nearly max volume pieces: body, back head(actually messed this part up and reprinted the top half), face. Used wood filler, Rust-Oleum 2x Ultra paint & primer, then brush on gold acrylic. The process took about 30 hours of printing before the laborious sanding, putty, more sanding, priming and painting. I made add some mirror leaf eventually, but for now it’s good enough for the shelf. This excellent model is by McKrats and is available on Thingiverse.
