In this paper, we present some results on 3D digitizing and visualizing a prehistoric portable art object. This 12,000 years old artifact was scanned with a surface scanner and with two volume scanners. With this last device, we can reach a high resolution which allows one to distinguish the engravings. It is not so easy to visualize and interact in 3D with such a complex object and we describe a framework composed of a stereoscopic visualization system coupled with a low-cost tangible interface based on a Wiimote.
