A column or strut in architecture and structural engineering is a structural element that transmits the weight of the structure above to other structural elements below by compression. In other words, a column is a compression member. The term “pillar” is particularly applicable to large circular support with a capital and a base or base, made of or appearing to be made of stone. A small wooden or metal support is usually called a pillar, and support with a rectangular or other non-circular cross-section is usually called a pier. Now pillar sculpture is very common in our life, more and more people put a pillar sculpture in their garden. Take a look at our Roman pillars column for sale.
The Egyptians, Persians, and other civilizations used columns mostly for practical purposes of supporting roofs inside buildings, preferring to decorate the exterior walls with reliefs or paintings, but the Ancient Greeks, followed by the Romans, preferred to use them on buildings. The extensive use of columns on the inside and outside of buildings is one of the most typical features of classical architecture, in buildings such as the Parthenon. The Greeks developed the classical architectural order, which is most easily distinguished by the form of the column and its various elements. Their Doric, Ionian, and Corinthian commands were expanded by the Romans to include Tuscan and compound commands. Have a look at our Roman pillars column for sale.
