As an industry leader in 3D and motion picture media, Cine-graphics recently uncovered a number of unique yet scary images. This imagery dates back to 19th century Paris, where a miniaturized version of Hell was photographed in 3D.
The findings emanate from a 1978 publication, Diableries: La Vie Quotidienne chez Satan. In the book, Jac Remise states that a crew of Paris demolition workers discovered a mysterious wooden box in a condemned building. Amid the ruins of the building, the box was wrapped with military belts – and featured several photographs depicting hell.
These images were laden with scary skeletons, drunken devils, and scantily clad women. There was also an anonymous note from an individual – who shared the same visions of hell. He or she also may have produced these 3D images – referring to them as “the work of my life.” If his or her premonitions are true, then hell may not be as scary as previously thought – especially with booze and loose women running around and tempting the masses.
Each scene in the image series was sculpted out of plaster and clay. The images were also accentuated with miniature props – producing an incredible 3D effect that was light years ahead of its time. If 3D technologies were available in the 1860s, one can only imagine what other high-end technologies were developed during the 19 century.
