Marble Column Vase by Stories of Italy
This vase pays homage to one of the fundamental archetypes of Italian and Western symbolism. Hand sculpted in Carrara marble, it is inspired from one of the oldest Roman-Greek classical architectonic orders: the Doric. The creative process applied reflects the essential traits of a Doric column - the absence of the pedestal,the shallow flutes on the shaft and a capital without ornaments. The silhouette has been softened, the grooves run naturally towards the top, giving a fluid effect, the modelling of the capital is smooth and sinuous. The proportions, however, confer the solid appearance that, as Pollione described, distinguishes this order from the others.
