ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS, PICCADILLY, LONDON 1873
(single doorway model)

The doorway portrays Athena, the Greek Goddess of Knowledge looking outwards accompanied by the owl of wisdom that appears above her head. The carved keystone is part of the pedestrian archway leading into

The Royal Academy Courtyard of Burlington House, an earlier 17th century Palladian villa. The heavy wrought iron gate is accurately reproduced using a brass etched fret through which light will fall in precise shadow whether lit from in front or behind.

This is a popular classic modeloriginally commissioned by The Royal Academy from Timothy in 1996 and is often chosen to pair with The National Portrait Gallery.

Weight: 2.2 kg - Dimensions: 7w x 8h x 3d

The entrance to any building immediately sets the scene for what is to be found inside and the doorway models from Timothy Richards of Bath focus on these iconic elements of the building.

They make a striking focus on any mantelpiece, occasional table or bookcase and make a memorable gift for all occasions.
