A wonderful and rare Italian Baroque carved Vicenza stone pedestal or pillar.

This decorative pillar carved from Vicenza limestone is a perfect example of the influence of the Renaissance on the Baroque.

Richly ornamented with sculpture decoration, the carving is composed of festooned garlands of fruits and flowers, surmounted by extravagant ribbons encasing the form of a pomegranate. The garland of fruit is a classical motif taken from Roman antiquity symbolising abundance.

The decor of Italian Palazzos and private residences were enriched with the baroque style in the late 16th Century.
Rich ornamentation and sculptural decoration based upon symmetry imposing order on nature originated in the gardens of the Vatican, the Villa Borghese gardens in Rome and Villa d’Este in Tivoli.
The movement later spread to France and became known as the “jardin à la française” or the French Formal garden in the 17th Century.

The perfect addition to your formal garden, your pavilion, grotto or centre of your parterre. This piece would equally be adored and admired as a work of art or a pedestal for a sculpture in your interior.
