From the Kingdom of Queen of Sheba, exceptional small iconic stele, current reproduction of pieces that existed dating from the 3rd/1st century BC.
These steles are the remains of forgotten civilizations of the South Arabian Peninsula and more particularly of Yemen, a thousand-year-old country with dreamlike landscapes and unique architecture in the world.
For many, it remains the land of incense, “caravan routes” and the lands of the sultans.
Hand-carved from sandstone by our artisans, these steles were originally pillars. Rectangular in shape, with the effigy of stylized faces, they were sometimes engraved with the name of their owners.
These faces, always represented from the front with a straight nose, topped with eyebrow arches in strong relief, were framed by almond-shaped eyes and a small mouth with pursed lips.
Their stylization is remarkably abstract, their primitive appearance has inspired more than one artist of the modern era.
Patinas and wear due to time are skillfully reproduced in our workshops in a natural way.
They are each presented on a matte black “museum style” base.
