Sculpture student Anthony Limauro (B.F.A. Fine Arts ’15) referenced classical forms in the contemporary table that he created as part of his senior thesis project. With a glass and walnut top supported by four bronze caryatids, which are sculpted figures that serve as supports, his design explores the contrast between the classical sensibility of the dark, sculptural table legs and the cleaner, lighter finish of the rest of the piece.
In a departure from the sculpted female caryatids found in classical architecture, Limauro created both male and female figures to serve as caryatids supporting the tabletop. Each one faces a different direction, offering a sense of movement to the piece that emphasizes his modern interpretation of the traditional.
