A model of the Temple of Artemis the Huntress. This model is a reproduction of a Sir John Soane's museum collection piece. The original was created by the legendary french model maker Francois Fouquet in the early 1800's. The temple was built in Athens on the banks of the Ilissus probably by Kallicrates. Today the temple is a ruin but was stunning in its day, in the words of the museum curator "Nothing can surpass the extreme simplicity and elegance of this composition. The beautifully proportioned columns, the angular capitals, and simple entablature are most happy effects of the refinement and elegant taste of the enlightened people to whom this work owes its origin."
Chisel & Mouse were founded in 2011. They make precise, signed and dated architectural sculptures to order, using a mixture of traditional and modern techniques. They are specialists in producing high-end models in plaster and 3d printed materials, and have produced replicas of selected architectural models and elements from the Soane Museum collection. The first model in this collection is the Temple of Artemis the Huntress.
