When it comes to European decoration
Inseparable from the Roman column
The Roman column has been inherited for more than 2000 years
it was seen in ancient greek times
Symbol of prestige, power, wealth
It is still synonymous with refined luxury
Doric column (Tauric)
The Greeks also endowed the architecture with the concept of “human beauty” in sculpture art, and the Doric column symbolized the beauty of male masculinity.
The second of the three column types of classical architecture is the Ionic column. It has a column base with soft lines, a relatively slender column body, and a deep semi-circular groove. The main part of the column head is an inverted vortex. Swirl decoration.
The last of the three types of columns in classical architecture is the Corinthian column. The Corinthian column is actually a variant of the Ionic column, but it is more elaborate and luxurious and highly decorative. The Corinthian stigma is decorated with buttercup and honeysuckle leaves, which are interlaced and look like a flower basket.
After the demise of Greece, Rome carried the architectural styles of the ancient Greek civilization. Among them, the columns of ancient Greece were loved by the Romans. During this period, the Tuscan column and the mixed column were born, which are collectively called the classical five-column, which is what we now collectively call the “Roman column”.
The Tuscan column type is actually a simplified Doric column type without the cogging of the column body, and the column base is a thinner torus.
