CDR-1346: SR Set: Scale Models from Ancient to Modern Times

This diverse and entertaining set, with examples arranged in roughly chronological order, is drawn from over a dozen different Scholars Resource vendors, and is appropriate to a number of disciplines. Found here is a model of the Solar Barge of the Pharaoh Khufu from 2500 BCE, unearthed beside the Great Pyramid; a variety of models made from Leonardo da Vinci's drawings; or a model of the Bastille carved from a single large stone of the demolished prison. Architectural models are well represented, and accompanied with images of the completed buildings. Other examples include funerary models, religious or ceremonial paraphernalia, and historical or cultural reconstructions as in the artists' renditions of the Tower of Babel.
