Our Lady of Sobieski in gigapixel format

September 3, 2022

The cathedral in Wroclaw contains a particularly venerated painting of Our Lady of Sobieski, also known as the painting of Our Lady of Victory and Our Lady of Sorrows, which was painted in Rome around 1670-1685, probably by Giovanni Battista Salvi, as evidenced by the strong resemblance to his works in Cesena and Pesaro.

As part of the project „Dissemination through 2D/3D digitisation of the Cathedral of St John the Baptist in Wroclaw – Mother of the Churches of Silesia”, carried out in collaboration with the cathedral parish, we carried out a 2D gigapixel digitisation of this magnificent painting.

The whole process was carried out in several stages, i.e. the taking of the component photographs with a digital SLR camera equipped with a telephoto lens and a specialised automatic panoramic head, postproduction consisting in colour and density editing of the RAW files and export of the component photographs to a specialised programme for creating panoramas, rendering of the image to a graphic file and finally export to a format which will allow it to be viewed in a dedicated browser for virtual presentation.

We have completed more than 20 projects, digitising more than 1,000 exhibits

We wish to cooperate with owners of monuments of sacred and secular architecture who understand the importance of conducting digitisation processes and want to disseminate knowledge about their monument in an interactive and virtual form, in accordance with the WCAG 2.1 standard.
