A model of the Monument at Palmyra. 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. This model represents one section of a larger monument called the Tetrapylon located in the ancient city of Palmyra, Syria. Unfortunately Islamic State have all but destroyed this monument along with many other historic buildings in the area.
Our model is produced in plaster and displayed under an acrylic case.

Just a quick email to say I received the Cityscape today- WOW it’s brilliant, heavy as well. Got to say it’s a brilliant piece of work, very detailed, and up to date, and an ideal gift for a person that lives in central London as a gift. Glad I found your site and placed an order.
