This thesis proposes a Lighting Coordinates Database for the illumination of three-dimensional art objects. Finding and defining the weak points of current lighting methodology reinforces the importance of the need for such a database. The two methods of obtaining data for this database, the computer software and hardware method are described. For the case study, the head of Michelangelo’s David is chosen. By using the software method, the scanned image of David is illuminated and an example database is created. As the second method, a prototype of a lighting model, David’s scaled model is illuminated by using LED light sources and another example database is created.
