The use of digital photogrammetry and 3D scanning as tools for archaeological heritage record, analysis and dissemination has increased markedly in recent years. Using these technologies a post-doctoral project is currently in progress at the Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology (MAE) of São Paulo University, Brazil with the scope to document, record and analyse the animal stone figurines collection at the Museum. The objects are threefold: 1) to use photogrammetry and 3D scanner technologies to document the stone figurines collection from MAE; 2) to create a data bank available to researchers using the Sketchfab 3D platform and 3) to create a reference 3D printed collection for educational purposes to be used at Brazilian Universities. Here I will present the activities concerning the employed 3D techniques, the obtained results so far and perspectives for further researches.
