Caryatid Column Statue from
Porch of Maidens at Acropolis

The Caryatid or Maiden column is a beloved figure from the Porch of Maidens of the Erechtheum (Erechtheus, Greek Erechtheion) at the Acropolis built under Perikles’ (Pericles) direction during the 5th century. Her high classical contrapposto stance is enhanced by her gracefully articulated Greek cloak. She is a beauty! 1st-century-BC Roman architectural writer Vitruvius, related a story of how the Caryatid Column was named. In 480 BC during their second invasion of Greece, the Caryae sided with the Persians, thus dooming the women of the town to hard labour. Enjoy her here reproduced in compound stone with a gray finish at 26”H x 6.5”W x 6.5”D (23 lbs) with a grey stone finish after the originals which are lifesize. G-011S, -1-223

Athens, Greece. The Porch of the Maidens, Erechtheum, Acropolis was erected in 421-406 B.C. It was designed by Ictinus and Callicartes. Maidens (known as Caryatids) replace columns in the porch of the Erechtheum. The originals today have been replaced by fiber glass reproductions due to concerns over pollution erosion. The building’s site is supposedly where Athena and Poseidon contested to become the city’s patron deity. Made from resin with antiqued patinas, 8”x 4.5”x 4.5” each, 5 lbs for the set. 5085-1-45
