This statue is made from 3D scans of the Original "Thinker" Statue by Rodin
 
When conceived in 1880 in its original size (approx. 70 cm) as the crowning element of The Gates of Hell , seated on the tympanum, The Thinker was entitled The Poet. He represented Dante, author of the Divine Comedy which had inspired The Gates, leaning forward to observe the circles of Hell, while meditating on his work. The Thinker was therefore initially both a being with a tortured body, almost a damned soul, and a free-thinking man, determined to transcend his suffering through poetry. The pose of this figure owes much to Carpeaux’s Ugolino (Left and middle, 1861) and to the seated portrait of Lorenzo de’ Medici carved by Michelangelo (Right, 1526-31). Both of these sculptures can be found on the Scan The World archive.
