SCHEMATA: 3D Classification and Categorization of Ancient Terracotta Figurines

Alexander Zeckey, Martin Langner

Abstract

The goal of the starting case-study is not only to develop procedures for automatically generating corpora using 3D pattern recognition, but also to reflect on the associated schematizations and how they can be applied in computer science and visual sciences. For this purpose, methods of object mining in 3D data are to be developed. We chose an object group which is defined by its complexity in shape and the similarity between the objects: In 4th and 3rd century BC ancient Greece small terracotta figurines used to be an art form that was quite common. Based on 200 of those terracottas, a classification system will be elaborated with digital methods, which is able to meet the complexity of the artefacts. In close cooperation between computer science and archaeology, this experimental process leads to a fundamental examination of the concept of pattern recognition as a humanities category. The discussion of the various concepts and methods will be carried out in two complementary dissertations.
