Mahogany Corinthian Capital

This Corinthian style column capital was carved by Dimitrios Klitsas to serve as a studio model to demonstrate the effects of classical design to students and clients. It can be seen in Klitsas Woodcarving studio every day where it is performing that service. Please note the lifelike and lively acanthus leaves. The work is carved from mahogany, a hard wood which carves cleanly, thus enabling the deep undercuts which give the work its natural appearance. The piece is unfinished, in layers, so that the student can see the stages of the work.
