The Creation work of the replica of the temple of the ancient canaries advance and already offer visible results.

East exhibition facsimile of the cave which is part of the Risco Caído Cultural Landscape and the Sacred Mountains of Gran Canaria, recently declared World Heritage, will be installed in the interpretation center located in the municipality of Artenara at the end of the year.

A multidisciplinary team of professionals from the Cabildo de Gran Canaria and the company Factum Arte, author of the reproduction of the tomb of Tutankhamun, deals with the different phases of the project in which it was first necessary to collect data from the cave itself, a step prior to making the different pieces.

The digitization work has been carried out using different non-invasive digital techniques to document both the color and the surface and dimensions of the cave.

The next phase of the process consists of materialization and construction of reproduction. Through a combination of both digital and manual systems and procedures, the entire surface of the cave is being digitally sculpted to later be manually treated and assembled by Factum experts who will give the final character to the reproduction.

The replica will recreate the emotional and sensory experience of being physically inside the Sanctuary of the Fallen Cliff, creating a full-scale environment, indistinguishable from the original cave, fully accessible to all audiences.

At the same time, the Cabildo de Gran Canaria is carrying out refurbishment work on the Artenara Interpretation Center to adapt the space that will host this reproduction.

This center, which has been open to the public since last July, recreates with multimedia instruments the existence of a disappeared insular culture that evolved in isolation for centuries and whose vestiges have survived to this day, as well as the attributes and characteristics of the Risco Caído cultural landscape and the Sacred Mountains of Gran Canaria declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site on July 7.
