This is a late Roman ring found on the continent, on a mountainous foot/bike path, wearing a patriarchal cross and the inscription S.I. , which if I have studied right stands for Jesus Saviour. The two outer marks may be decoration, or also they are local pre-Roman script.

I won't go into the trials of getting a finished image, another post for that sometime I think.
With permission of mdf I will also include a real picture drawn by my late relative Carl, someone who always sought, and accepted, the light.
God speed Carl.
And a very beautiful drawing by Carl (RIP)
Wish list: MINELAB EQUINOX 800.
A great feeling finding my first hammie
I'm actually still rubbing it ...

Regarding the drawing, It's plainly evident that your relation Carl, was a man of considerable ability and it shows in the lighting qualities of the drawing. A rather special man with a special talent.
Thank you for sharing both subjects of your post Regards ss48

Good progress on your 3D journey..
Good object with no doubt a helluva story.
And a nice tribute to your relative
Who had obvious talent

I found that there's a certain amount of elation when each stage is completed and you can see that the result may be half decent.
It just shows that the 3D technology is achievable by those that stick with it
The work by Carl is lovely and look forward to the completion of the website.

Impressive, you seem to have got the hang of it
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

What I will do soon is post a write up on my little adventure into 3D so anyone can get some idea of what awaits them, add a few tips to what Paul has posted previously, and add a few links. Even though 3dflow software is set up to be very user friendly, it is a bit inevitable that people reach a point where they deal with technicalities of one kind or another. In not too distant future I think it will be made very easy, Windows PC delayed launch of their product, Sony has a house version for their top phones I think, there are applications on Android trying to get there, and a few serious phone projects underway that are designed to use a comparatively cheap added hardware to achieve high level near automatic results.
I did find a near identical ring on the web, pictured half way down

which is quite an interesting article. As only Boandtia is likely to be able to read it in Spanish here is a translated version

The only difference is his ring is a P not I ( and I have tried every way to check my I is not a P... still says it is an I) .
Thanks and again , and now to rummage for the next object to be subjected to my 3D learning experience.
