(8). HOLOGRAPHIC ROSETTA:
-- Holographic Rosetta -- in pre-development stage.
we are in the beginning stages of working on an
absolutely stunning 3-D digital holographic image of
the Rosetta Stone
that is suspended in mid air. The
initial descriptions indicate that there is nothing else
-- to be made available for museum exhibits, special events, etc.

WHAT ARE THE DISTINCTIVE FEATURES OF
THIS REPLICA PROJECT?
We believe that we are the first and only entity in the
world to offer commercially-available, full-size, 3-D
replicas of the original Rosetta Stone to potential
purchasers for whatever private or public interests they
may have. In other words, a potential customer is not
required to represent a bona fide museum or educational
institution to obtain one of our innovative Rosetta Stone
replicas. Our full-size, 3-D replicas are available for
purchase by anyone in the general public. This is one of
the most compelling aspects of this project, which matches
our desire to provide a hands-on experience with a replica
of one of the important archaeological artifacts ever
discovered...for millions of people.
ii. We provide a
special discount for museums, educational institutions and
any other bona fide non-profit organization that desires
to use the replica for educational/exhibition purposes
(31% off introductory price for Classic Rosetta model).
Tell us about your organization (include your website)
when you ask for more
iii. We are
developing various models to match large or small budgets
-- unique innovations that exhibit well in either large or
small spaces -- for domestic or more expansive exhibition
iv. Once you have selected the model you want to
purchase, we can
a replica within 6-8 weeks to any
anywhere in the world -- a rather quick turn-around for
something of such unusually fine quality...hand-crafted
especially for you. These are not "off
the shelf" replicas made on some assembly line in
China. All replicas are made in the USA.
We provide excellent, world-class customer service before,
during and after your delivery. We will respond ASAP to
any of your questions via
email or phone (410-991-9718). Upon
request, customer references are available.
Here's one of the most exciting features: Our Classic
mimic the appearance of the genuine Rosetta Stone
(after the original Rosetta Stone was cleaned in 2004).
rose-colored vein of granodiorite that came to light after
the 2004 cleaning of the original Rosetta Stone is set in the upper
left hand corner of our natural colored, 3-D replicas.
This is an extremely difficult aspect of the original Rosetta
Stone to duplicate when fabricating a three
dimensional piece of art, utilizing rotational casting
technology. It is our objective to offer nothing but
excellence on every level. You'll see...

Pedestal Exhibition Base -- 30" x 30"
(hand crafted for each replica)
Exhibition Pedestal Base Concepts
We have recreated the cylinder of the original exhibition base you see in
the image (London Illustrated, 1874) below, except
there will be no square piece at the bottom of the pedestal base. These
exhibition bases are comprised of a sand-filled,
granite-like resin cylinder (about 30" tall x 28" across) -- available only for the life-size,
We also have another exhibition concept (designed
especially for mobility...greater ease in shipping the
replica & base to/from trade shows, for instance), attaching the
Rosetta Stone replica to a black matte pipe screwed into the
bottom at a very slight forward angle.
|The other end of the pipe
will be screwed into a large granite-like resin base filled with sand -- or a flat piece of
steel. We are currently working on the viability/stability of
the base concepts and the pricing of the
base ideas. We will also be developing exquisitely framed copies of
the 1874 London Illustrated image -->

Classic Bronze, Classic Silver, Baby Rosetta
and Hybrid Rosetta
models (and bases) are being fabricated by Mannetron, utilizing the
Rotational Casting technology and will be hollow (about 1/2"
thick, with an internal layer of high density foam), so that the
shipping cost will be minimized. The foam will also strengthen the
walls of each replica.
Classic Fine Art Bronze and
models are being fabricated by a foundry.
The Classic "Lost Wax" Bronze Rosetta model will be made of real bronze,
using the "lost wax" process that is utilized for highly valued fine
art pieces that are immortalized in like manner.
These bronze models will be about 1/2" thick and will weigh 3-4
times more than the resin models. Consider developing a "Legacy"
or "Lifetime Achievement" Award in your community. A
Bronze Rosetta would be the ultimate award, prized by anyone who
receives such an honor.
Even though the main purpose for creating the Rosetta Stone
Replicas has been to provide them as educational exhibits for
the Black History galleries
Institute® Foundation is
developing, there has been substantial interest from individuals
and educational entities for purchasing certain models.
These stunning, museum-quality replicas will be expensive. It has
been a long process (4+ years)...bringing this project to the point where
we are almost ready to start the fabrication of replicas fit for
public exhibition. Ask about discounts, available only for educational
institutions, libraries & museums.
not a cheap "Made-In-China" assembly-line
replica project. Nor is it a washed-out, flat resin copy of a
copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of the
face of the Stone, cast in someone's back yard.
Each Rosetta Stone replica (fabricated from a
1st-generation facsimile) is individually and lovingly hand crafted
by artisans in an expert environment and will be as strong and
as durable as a cultured marble-type counter top -
40% resin / 60% granodiorite filler.
The shipping, handling (including the construction of secure wooden box for
transport), and insurance costs will be borne by the buyer. The
cost of S&H and insurance will be determined by the final
destination to which the replica will be shipped and the least
expensive (yet secure) method of shipping via a credible shipper
(preferably by air).
We absolutely guarantee
that the replica will be delivered to the shipper in pristine
condition. In the unlikely event of damage occurring during shipping...that
will be taken up with the
shipper's insurance company. The rule of thumb is that the
quicker an object like this arrives, the less potential damage.
Ground shipping will be the least-viable option.
Feel free to
us with your thoughts and questions. We look forward to
providing full-size, 3-D, museum-quality replicas of the Rosetta
Stone very soon. Rosetta Classic, LLC is listed at the American
Association of Museum's "Museum
Marketplace." All purchases of the Rosetta Stone replicas through
Rosetta Classic, LLC will benefit
the goals and objectives of
The Freeman Institute Foundation
(see more info below), which is directed by
Dr. Joel Freeman.
Excellence. Satisfaction guaranteed. Period.
