The Musée royal de Mariemont in Belgium is currently holding an exhibition called “From Stargate to Comics: Egyptian Gods In Geek Culture,” and one of the center piece of the exhibition is a 3D printed 20-foot tall replica of a Stargate. The gate is composed of over 2,000 parts featuring 10,000 cutting. Th whole thing took over 1,000 hours to complete. Wow. Just wow.
For those interested, the exhibition will end on November 20th, 2016.
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 …).
