Chinese Marble Pedestal

About

This finely carved marble pedestal is ideal for display inside or out. The raised pleats stand in for a melon’s ribs and flow down from the pedestal top to the stepped disc base. The dynamic relationship from rounded top, to swelling centre, to rounded base brings movement to solid stone. A traditional symbol of fertility, the melon form of this sculptural pedestal offers meaning and architectural beauty to any environment. Additional dimensions: Pedestal top 13".
