Starting from a set of figurines from Buṣayra, this article describes a project in cooperation between the universities of Basel and Strasbourg to create a virtual collection of 450 widely-scattered terracotta female figurines from Jordan. The project aims at measuring and recording the figurines and fragments of figurines using RTI/PTM techniques, and compiling them in a virtual database. The ultimate goal is to create the digital tools for visualization, virtual assembly, and interactive annotation, opening up and encouraging international cooperation, and providing a solid basis for the enhancement of World Heritage objects.
