Post-Modern clear acrylic Lucite obelisk. The vintage 1970s table-top monument features a curious hole at the top with a metal rod balanced through the center. The base shaft and base are faceted, allowing light to sparkle within the prism like a diamond. This Nineteen-Laties glam sculpture is a glittering accent. The ancient form evokes a sense of power and glory. Obelisks originated in ancient Egypt. The pyramid shape is no accident. The faceted, 3-D triangle is man’s way of reflecting might back toward the sun… the ultimate source of power. Obelisks remain a prominent visual symbol throughout cultures across the world.
