Idea about 3D printing the GF mural

Hello, I have an idea I would like to share and hear your thoughts about it. Inspired by the sandstone carving of the Grim Fandango mural, posted by the Grim Fandango Stop-Mo Project-guy I was thinking about 3D-Printing the mural. There is software that can interpret 2D pictures as 3D models by taking their contrast and setting bright areas as higher and dark areas as lower points. Once you have a 3D model of the mural you could easily (?) "print" it either with a 3D printer oder a CNC machine. Here is a (german) company doing right that . What do you think? Could this be working?
