Excellent reconstruction. I wonder why the first renderings you made show some holes in the shadow that the Maxwell render hasn’t.

Thanks,
You mean these? the shadows are on the shapes

Also in Maxwell i can control sharpness of the shadows by scaling point light which is more realistic and close any small holes in the edges

Yes exactly. The softer shadows make the Maxwell render hard to distinguish from the original. :clap:

Amazing work!
I see in the sitting woman, you cut the outline on the chair profile, but in the construction blocks I don´t see any special cut, all the blocks seem “properly” flat.
Did you manually arrange the blocks to produce the shadow? As said it´s an amazing result!

Thanks , the original chair made like this you can see that in the website of the artist.
Sometimes she used positions and heigths , sometimes edges and sculpting.
I recreated the curves of the blocks than used Grasshopper to find the right heights with sliders or Genpool
