I am looking to recreate a piece of historical architecture based on the rock-cut tombs of Petra. The purpose of this model is to test out ancient methods of building by using academic knowledge to create a one-of-a-kind experimental example of how certain tools and techniques work in reality. Ideally the "tomb" will stand about 4m high and 3m wide and be made of sandstone. We have scholars who know the ancient engineering details of such a project, but we need someone who can creatively execute the project using sculpting and carving expertise.

It is important to investigate the appropriate ancient methods of engineering, but I am also interested in hearing of possible new techniques to recreate the ancient architecture.

I would like to hear from any interested person as soon as possible.
