An eye-caching pair for home or office, these bookends celebrate the magnificent Sardis column on display at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The capital, base, and portions of the shaft of the massive marble Ionic column come from a monumental temple constructed at Sardis (in today’s Turkey) and dedicated to Artemis, the Greek goddess of the hunt and the moon. Shortened from its original height of 56 feet, The Met’s column lets the viewer see the fine carving of the foliate ornaments on the capital and the fish-scale pattern on the molding at its base.
