A symbol of the sun god Ra, obelisks were a prominent element in ancient Egyptian architecture, usually placed in pairs at the entrance to temples. Made in America in the 20th century, our Vintage Travertine Obelisk was modeled after these archaic, four-sided monuments. It’s crafted from natural cream-colored travertine stone, a type of limestone deposited by mineral springs. This simple structure is in good condition, with just a few small chips and marks consistent with its age.
