After careful consideration, the team at Booker T. Washington High school decided to change the direction of the design of the sculpture. They liked the photograph of Booker T. on a stool looking at a book. There are several photographs with a similar look. In some photographs, he is sitting in a chair instead of a stool. The sculptor will now change directions to see about recreating this look. Bridgette will no longer need to look at 3D scanning and enlarging using 3D printing to bronze casting. But she will be using digital technology in the sculpture. Will the final sculpture be life-size or larger than life? It’s back to the drawing board.
