Corinthian Pillars bookends


CORINTHIAN BC174 - The Third Order of Greek Architecture

The Corinthian order was adopted by the Romans from the Greeks and was bestowed with the association of beauty and love. It is the most popular of the Greek Orders.

Detail has been taken from the Temple of Zeus Olympia, Athena, BC174. The temple was built from designs by Cossutius, a Roman architect. This temple was important as parts of it were taken to Rome where its presence resulted in many copies and the popularising of the Corinthian order.

These

Corinthian Pillars bookends 

are hand cast in fine Gypsum plaster from an original reproduction sculpted by Timothy Richards - Architectural Models in Plaster in Bath, England.

Weight: 4.4 kg - Dimensions: 11w x 9h x 3d
