Description

The "Wall Sculpture Acanthus" takes inspiration from a magnificent marble pilaster adorned with intricate acanthus scrolls. With its sand finish, this sculpture effortlessly captures the beauty of the original piece. Measuring L. 179 cm, W. 40 cm, and with a depth of 6 cm, it revives the essence of Roman artistry. The pilaster, featuring various birds among its acanthus scrolls, echoes the grandeur of Rome's imperial monuments, making it a striking addition to your decor that harkens back to a rich historical era.

HISTORIC PROVENANCE

The Wall Sculpture Acanthus draws inspiration from a Roman marble pilaster with acanthus scrolls (1st half of 1st century A.D.) at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The pilaster, decorated with architectural acanthus scrolls and a variety of birds, is presumably from a public building. Similar carvings are found on major imperial monuments in Rome, as well as funerary altars and smaller objects such as Arretine pottery and silver drinking bowls. Our reproduction piece has been finely handcrafted in a sandstone finish.
