MY INSPIRATION - (The Metropolitan Museum of Art Series)

Time stood still. Hours passed in the blink of an eye. I was, at last, standing in ecstasy in sight of over two million works of art, spanning 5,000 years, at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The Met, founded in 1870, is one of the largest and finest art museums in the world.

One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World was the Temple Of Artemis, built in the 4th century B.C. in Sardis, Turkey. This enormous temple was 377 feet long by 180 feet wide and was enclosed in colonnades of 127 ionic marble columns which stood over 56 feet tall. The column below was found during excavations conducted from 1911 through 1914 in Sardis. The fluted column (with most of the shaft omitted) foliate ornament carvings on the capital, as well as the scale pattern on the torus (foliated base) is absolutely stunning. My inspiration - the golden hues, ancient cracks, chiseled carvings, and the architecture of the Temple of Artemis.
