These stones are memorials with crosses and other motifs that were a common element of Armenian medieval era art. These stone carvings are free-standing. This particular carving is called the Amenaprktich (the Saviour) khatchkar, and is at Haghpat Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage site in Armenia, and is ornately carved on three sides with rich iconography and writing. These stones have been impacted by cultural vandalism and surface degradation and breakage. This monument was documented as part of our 3D survey using a variety of tools. This video is derived from gigapixel photography, which is a digital image bitmap composed of one billion pixels. This video was created from image mosaics comprised of a large number of high-resolution digital photographs that were taken of the piece.
We would like to thank the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, Catholicosate of All Armenians for their support and participation in this project.
