From the Kingdom of Queen Sheba, exceptional collection of iconic stelae dating from the 3rd/1st century BC.

These stelae are the remains of forgotten civilizations of the South Arabian peninsula and more particularly of Yemen, a thousand-year-old country with dream landscapes and unique architecture in the world.

For many, it remains the land of incense, “caravan routes” and the lands of the sultans.
We offer hand-sculpted reproductions in sandstone made by our craftsmen.
These stelae were originally pillars.

Of rectangular or square shapes, with the effigy of stylized and geometric faces, they were sometimes engraved with the name of their owners.

These faces, always represented from the front with a straight nose, surmounted by eyebrow arches in high relief, were framed by almond-shaped eyes and a small mouth with pursed lips.

Their stylization is remarkably abstract, their primitive appearance has inspired more than one artist of the modern era.
Patinas and wear due to time are skilfully reproduced in our workshops in a natural way.
They are each presented on a matte black "museum piece" metal base.

Very beautiful and original decorative accessory, can also be a really original and unusual atypical gift idea to enhance your interior.
Perfect for gifting or decorating!
