1854 Crystal Palace Dinosaurs by Baxter 1 Featured Sculpture Print

1854 Crystal Palace Dinosaurs by Baxter 1

1854. Sydenham Crystal Palace with Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins dinosaur sculptures in the foreground. 11cm x 16.3 cm. Miniature colour print by the George Baxter patent process of mutiple ink blocks. This version of the print is softened and colour corrected for age-toning to provide the best image. Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins sculptures were the first models of dinosaurs ever produced, and all the more striking for being life size. Left to right they are in the water left Teleosaurus, first on land Megalosaurus, Hyaeolosaurus, Labyrinthdont (?), Iguanodon, and unidentified far right. They caused a sensation in Victorian England and ushered in the dinosaurs enduring popularity with the general public. The models still survive in Sydenham Park, though the Crystal Palace was destroyed by fire. Original print in the collection of Paul D. Stewart

Sunset at Nelson the Seal, Looe, Cornwall Featured Sculpture Print

Sunset at Nelson the Seal, Looe, Cornwall

A Bronze sculpture by Suzie Marsh, on Pennyland Rocks in Looe harbour, Cornwall, UK is a memorial to Nelson, a one-eyed bull grey seal. Nelson was a familiar site in the harbors of Cornwall, UK for over 25 years, and a great favorite with all. After his death in 2003, a life size bronze sculpture was made by Suzie Marsh and placed on Pennyland Rocks. In May 2008 the statue was unveiled by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston CBE, and was honored by a flypast by 849 Naval Air Squadron

Chiswick House, Red Velvet Room ceiling J970259 Featured Sculpture Print

Chiswick House, Red Velvet Room ceiling J970259

CHISWICK HOUSE, London. Interior. View of the ceiling in the Red Velvet Room.
The ceiling is inset with painted panels attributed to William Kent and has usually been interpreted as an allegory of the Arts. The panels around the edge, for example, incorporate musical instruments, portrait roundels of gods and goddesses (Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Mars, Diana and Apollo) and their appropriate Zodiac signs. In the central panel the messenger god Mercury hovers above a stone arch, below which is a group of figures with further emblems of the visual arts: Architecture is represented by a bare-chested woman with a set square and a cherub with a plan of a Roman temple, Sculpture by a fallen bust of Inigo Jones, and Painting by a woman unveiling a self-portrait of Kent.
The radical alternative interpretation of this symbolism is that it alludes to the ritual of the Royal Arch masonic lodge. Red is the Royal Arch colour, so the red velvet on the walls is symbolic, as is the red drape which is being removed to reveal Kent's portrait in the ceiling. The traditional implements of the architect and sculptor, depicted in the ceiling, are likewise masonic emblems, while the combination of an arch below a rainbow which occurs in the ceiling painting was apparently a common subject of early Royal Arch lodge banners. The suggestion, therefore, is that this room could have been designed by Burlington and Kent - both of whom were certainly freemasons - to function as a masonic meeting place
