Non-competing non-entry. Done long ago with trueSpace for a contest with the theme “strange discovery”.

“click … buzz … click … Sir? … Burgess sir, Dr. Burgess. I’m an archeologist … I understand. It gave me a good laugh too but it’s not a hoax … Approximately life size. Tool marks and some sand around it indicate it was abraded using other stones … between 4000 and 11000 … no, I can’t explain it.”

Open, cycles, 8192 samples, optix denoiser, rendertime ~20min, all made in blender except the screen texture, the pics are screenshots/downloads from the net, i get rid of these disturbing displays and make a much more calm picture, need the high samples to get rid of the grungy background

My idea was a refrigerator in a derelict house that had been forgotten for many years and the “archaeological” contents of the refrigerator. A pack of minced meat with an expiry date of 12/1977, milk, cheese etc. Contents of the fridge 30-50 years later :slight_smile:

But unfortunately still and no time at all for weeks :-/ Hope it will be better again in autumn :slight_smile:
