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."
Our model is produced in plaster and displayed under an acrylic case.

I am amazed by the craftsmanship and detail put into the U.S. Capitol dome model. I absolutely love it!! The customer service from Gavin and all at Chisel and Mouse are best. They went above and beyond in every way. I will treasure this for the rest of my life.

My husband is absolutely over the moon with his cityscape. He loves it! He was pretty much speechless and overcome. He has taken a good look at your site and watched the videos etc. and is totally intoxicated.
