Our bookend reproductions are adapted from a marble column from a temple dedicated to Artemis that was begun at Sardis, the capital at Lydia, around the turn of the third century B.C. It was one of the largest Greek temples, with original Ionic columns that stood 56 feet high. A portion of one such column, including the capital, base, and sections of the shaft, is a focal point at the entry to the Museum's Greek and Roman galleries, and has been reproduced in careful detail to reveal the fine foliate carving of the capital and the fish-scale molding of the base.
Includes 2 bookends. Cast resin. Hand patinated. 9 1/2''H including base; 4 1/2'' square base.
