Sculpture description:
This is a monumental scale recreation of the frieze-work at the ancient Roman city of Aphrodisias in modern-day, southwestern Turkey. The frieze is carved in white Turkish marble while the cornice and architrave are carved in Turkish travertine marble.Please see Artist comments.
Artist's comments:
Within the region of Denizli, Turkey and located in a fertile valley near the marble quarries of Muğla, Aphrodisias is one of the most fascinating ancient cities in the world. It existed from the 300`s BC until about 640AD when it was largely destroyed by a massive earthquake. It has been under continuous archaeological exploration and restoration since the early 1960`s and this effort has uncovered an enormous amount of extraordinary sculpture and architecture. At the center of the city is a temple for the Greek goddess, Aphrodite, for whom the city was named. There was a school of marble sculpture here that lasted for almost six centuries and during the Pax Romana provided the Roman Empire, from this area to as far away as Britain, with beautiful marble sculpture. This is a city that was dedicated to Love and Art. One of the more common features of the combination of sculpture and architecture in Aprhrodisias were the entamblatures that contained friezes with portraits of local people, mythological characters and pure fantasy. My sculpture is intended to honor that tradition and at the same time create a monument for a new school of sculpture in Turkey, the Aegean Stone Sculpture Academy. This sculpture is twice life-size, or twice the scale of the Aphrodisias entamblatures. The portraits are of Mr. Nihat Kömürcoüğlü and myself, the two founders of this new school of sculpture, inspired by the ancient school at Aphrodisias.

Customer comment on 'Rainbow 1 (Curved Arched Modern abstract Carved Wooden statue)' by Liliya Pobornikova
Hi Liliya, Rainbow 1 arrived today. I can`t describe my delight, it is so truly awesome, where did you ever find such a piece of wood, and you are so skilled, creating such a unique piece. I`m not worried about the crack, it`s natural, and part of its beauty. This will be a privilege to own, and will last for so many lifetimes. Kind regards,
Mr A. Chalmers, Suffolk, United Kingdom.
