The object "Artemis Column" pays homage to the grandeur of the Temple of Artemis at Sardis.

Handcrafted from marble, each piece is unique, marked by variations in color and veining. Measuring W. 24 cm, D. 22 cm, and H. 45 cm, it echoes the architectural splendor of the original column, which stood over fifty-eight feet tall. The intricate foliate carving on the capital and the elaborate torus base reflect the unparalleled craftsmanship of the era. This column stands as a testament to ancient architectural mastery.

HISTORIC PROVENANCE


The Object Artemis Column is inspired by a marble column (ca. 300 B.C.) from the Temple of Artemis at Sardis, a highlight of The Met’s Greek and Roman art collection. The massive section of a fluted Ionic column, which stood at over 58 feet tall in its original location, showcases delicate foliate carvings on the capital—a unique feature among the surviving columns from the temple. The marble reinterpretation column boasts elegant ridged elements in homage to the column’s detailing and is crafted in marble, which rests on a black plinth.
