Materialise is creating a complete life-size replica of the Lier Mammoth that will go on display in the city of Lier, where the original was discovered in 1869. The Lier Mammoth has stood on display at Brussels’ royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences since its discovery.

Gertjan Brienan, Project Manager at Materialise said “The original skeleton presents some inaccuracies which reflect the knowledge at the time of the original mounting 150 years ago. One example is the length of its tail, which we now know is shorter than initially thought.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
