Description

A massive solid French grey marble turned column pedestal. The marble is in three separately carved components consisting of :

a traditional pedestal circular base , a massive turned column centre  and a stepped turned top with rectangular shaped top, all carved from one massive marble piece.

This marble pedestal would date from the early to mid 1800's and would have supported a considerable weight , possibly even a marble statue of great importance.

the three sections are: turned base height 17cm , column centre height 53 cm, turned and rectangular top height 15cm . Would be perfect for an outdoor table base on the patio!

Title Monolithic carved basalt marble Caryatid figure of an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Life size

Dimensions

Width 51cm

Height 153cm

Depth 38cm

Description 

Solid carved stone black basalt or marble sculptured figure carved from a single monolithic block.

This rare statue of an ancient Egyptian nobleman as a Visier or Paraoh  and is life size for the period with very well carved proportions.

Extremely heavy as its carved from one solid block of stone and weighs in excess of 300 kg.

the arms are carved from the same single block and the support stone near the wrists is still in place, clearly this is a copy of a period ancient sculpture as this was traditional for most stone sculptures prior to freight and delivery  to prevent breakages and could have been grpund away once the sattue was firmly in place.

As this may have been excavted in the same condition, perhaps from a shipwreck sunk at sea, it makes perfect sense that these connecting points are still attached and that this particular carved replica is ture to the ancient archaeological original in every aspect.
