A Khachkar, aka Armenian cross-stone 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. Laser scanned with a structured light instrument as part of the digital documentation survey at Haghpat Monastery by the University of South Florida. Jorge Gonzalez, 3D final model production.
