Description

This Ionic capital is fantastic! Cast in bronze with a gorgeous patina; decorated with volutes, floral patterns, and acanthus leaves; and monumental in size. Use it as a statuary base in your garden, as a pedestal for a sculpture in your entryway, or as an end or coffee table in your living room. No matter how you use this piece, it will make a statement and create conversation! Show off your knowledge with these tidbits of facts: The Ionic Order is one of five classical orders of architecture and defined by the volutes (scroll-shaped ornaments) which decorate the capital. The Ionic design originated in 6th century BC Ionia in Ancient Greece. Ionic columns are most often fluted. The Ionic column is always slenderer (and although this is the correct English usage, it really sounds better to say “more slender”. Don’t you think?) than the Doric. There you have had an architectural history lesson, now make this Ionic bronze capital your own.
