GREEK TEMPLE JEWELRY BOX


Now bleached and silent, the ancient temples of Greece still have the power to stir the heart. The simplicity of their form and the exquisite refinement of their design speak of a rational, philosophical approach to art and architecture. The ancient Greeks spent two centuries perfecting this building style, and other civilizations have spent even longer emulating it.

Now, Steve Vigar has used two of the ancient world’s crowning jewels – The Parthenon and the Temple of Apollo – to create a stunning hardwood jewelry box. The glories of classical Greek architecture between 800 and 400 BC are rendered in beautiful detail, from the distinctive Doric features of the open colonnade, to the characteristic shallow-pitched roof.
