The word obelisk is Greek, from obelos meaning pointed object. An obelisk makes a fine outdoor gnomon, that can be used as a sundial or calendar, as was done by Augustus in Rome. Today, obelisks are used often as plant supports, adding a wonderful vertical element to any vegetable or flower garden. They can also be used as sculptural objects in a landscape adding interest especially in wintertime under a coat of snow.
Please note: The version of the Classic Obelisk shown here has developed a nice weathered patina. The original color of the statue is Portland limestone. If you would like to fast forward nature, please ask us about our hand staining weathered finish
