A bronze ornament of one of the trilithons from the iconic British monument of Stonehenge.

This ornament forms part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition The world of Stonehenge.

The ornament has been crafted from cold-cast bronze, and replicates the shape and texture of one of the trilithons (a structure consisting of two standing stones with one stone laying horizontally across the top) of Stonehenge.

Stonehenge is one of the most fascinating and mysterious monuments in the world. The pre-historic rings of standing stones, found in Wiltshire in the west of England, are believed to have been erected between 3000 BC and 2000 BC and consist of outer rings of sarsen stone and inner rings of bluestone. The exact purpose of Stonehenge is unknown, however the positions of the stones suggest strong links to the winter and summer solstices, and excavations of the area have unearthed objects that suggest the area had links to worship and healing.

An incredible home decoration celebrating ancient history.
