M136 Superb Pair of Marble Sphinx - Hand Carved - Eichholtz

Pair of Marble Sphinx which are hand carved in Marble. Brings the mystique of ancient Egypt to your interior space. Crafted from white marble with meticulous handwork, each piece is unique, marked by variations in color and veining. This set is a testament to the early Archaic period's fusion of Greek and Egyptian sculptural styles, bearing the same stylized features and architectural influences. The Sphinx Set of Two is inspired by a marble sphinx (ca. 580–575 B.C.) on a cavetto capital—its carved, curved base—dating back to Greece’s Archaic period. The marble sculpture, now in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum in New York, once topped the tall grave shaft of a young man named Philinos or Thalinos, and belongs to the earliest type of grave stele produced in Attica during the 6th century B.C. Let this Pair by Eichholtz stand as guardians of history and beauty in your home.
