The Rosetta Stone was actually found during the Napoleonic Egyptian Military Campaign
in 1799, built into the foundation of an older structure on the west bank of the
Nile as Lt. Pierre Bouchard was preparing the foundation for Ft. Julian.



These images are designed to portray the Classic Rosetta model in an artistic manner -- 16" x 24" (on canvas)

for several models of stands to be attached,
covering the resin pour hole in the middle.

   We are recreating the cylinder of the original exhibition base you see in the image above (London Illustrated, 1874), except there will be no square piece at the bottom of the pedestal base.

These exhibition bases will be comprised of a sand-filled, granite-like resin cylinder (about 30" tall x 28" across) -- available only for the life-size, Classic Rosetta models. To the right is a rough visual concepts of the way the Classic Rosetta model will be exhibited.

                 * "Cold Silver" Plaque Rosetta (with black lettering) -- available!
                    
    * Classic Plaque Rosetta (with white lettering) -- available!

(8). HOLOGRAPHIC ROSETTA     info -- 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
             like it -- to be made available for museum exhibits, special events, etc. An educational jaw-dropper...

WHAT  ARE  THE  DISTINCTIVE  FEATURES  OF  THIS  REPLICA  PROJECT?

   

  i. 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 information.

  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 purposes.

  iv. Once you have selected the model you want to purchase, we can generally ship a replica within 6-8 weeks to any customer, 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.

  v. 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.

  vi. Here's one of the most exciting features: Our Classic Rosetta models mimic the appearance of the genuine Rosetta Stone (after the original Rosetta Stone was cleaned in 2004). The 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...

DIFFERENT  ANGLES  of CLASSIC  ROSETTA  MODEL  and  EXHIBITION  BASE

    

   

   
 

 


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, Classic Rosetta models.

  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 exhibition base ideas. We will also be developing exquisitely framed copies of the 1874 London Illustrated image -->


from The Freeman Institute History Collection


   The
Classic Rosetta, 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.

  The Classic Fine Art Bronze and Bronze Plaque 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 The Freeman 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.

  This is 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 email 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.

  Feel free to take a look at the other Rosetta Stone-related items in The Freeman Institute collection.
