Ram’s Head on a Console Table with Roman Stone Finish
A ram’s head has long been used for decorative purposes. In pre-Roman times, it became part of body adornments like amulets and pieces of jewellery. This use dates back to around the sixth century BC. It remains a mystery when or who exactly pioneered this masterpiece but the available documentations suggest that various carvers, skilled or not, produced them for buyers based around the Italian peninsula. Contrasting discoveries around the same period also say that it was the Greeks who worked on them by including the feature in Greek bronze vessels or wares, mirrors, and other utensils.
This Console Table places Ram’s Head on the legs of the table. At first glance, it appears that the centre head is not that of a ram’s and is the head of the person responsible for tending to the rams, evidenced by the ornate rows of leaves linking the shepherd to the rams. The entire console table is a fantastic piece of furniture handmade from fiberglass and designed with a Roman Stone finish to emphasize the regal yet idyllic details from the tabletop cornice down to the beautifully carved legs of the table.
