This original finish cerused and carved wood ziggurat, demilune plinth was one of two that graced the lounge of The Fisher Theater from its opening in 1928 until its re-fit in the early sixties. All the themed decor was produced under the supervision of Sylvanius Griswold Morley, renowned expert on the Mayan Civilization from the Carnegie Institute of Washington, who also wrote the opening night brochure. The dark stained plinth is carved with tracery in Mayan style, and is supported by three carved turtles whose shells are stained in a lighter shade. All finishes are original (Below: Period 1928 photograph from opening night brochure showing plinth in situ, camera left).
