Lewis Chessmen Knight produced on 3-d printer

My friend Dave used his 3-D printer to make one of the knights from the Lewis Chessmen, ivory chessmen carved by the Norse in Norway (or Iceland --there is some controversy) in the 12th century.  What a wonderful gift.  It makes me sing "Everything is Awesome" from The Lego Movie every time I see it.
