One of the most famous garden depictions from ancient Egypt comes from the tomb of Sennefer. The mural was discovered in 1828 by Ippolitto Rossellini and captured in his watercolor painting. For the installation in the "Gardens of the World" exhibition, the garden was digitally recreated in the style of the watercolor drawing.
Using AR, visitors were able to juxtapose the 3-dimensional garden with Rosselini's "plan" from a bird's eye view. The spatial dimension was experienced in VR as a walk from the main gate past the ponds to the shrine. The installation was later exhibited for the second time at the Museum August Kästner Hannover.
