This digital graphic is a tight shot of a Corinthian capital, the most ornate of the three classical architectural orders: Doric, Ionic and Corinthian. The Corinthian column is the most slender of the three orders. The first example is dated to 427 BC. Although the column is associated with the city of Corinth, it may have been invented by an Athenian. The Roman variant can be found in the temple of Mars Ultor in the forum of Augustus, the Maison Carree in Nimes and at the third level of the Flavian Amphitheater (Coliseum), Rome. Resting on a fluted column, the capital sprouts a row of acanthus leaves. Layered behind and above are more acanthus leaves out of which emanate multiple scrolls. The abacus (slab), that rests on the scrolls, has concave sides, each punctuated in the center by a rosette.
This work was executed as a 3-D graphic using Sketchup, Modo, Zbrush, Octane Render software by Sebastian Michalski. Architectural elements (Corinthian columns) were based on the work of Andrea Palladio, found in his book “I Quattro Libri Dell’Architectura” Book I, chapter XVII-the Corinthian Order, reprint 1760.

Poland is now one of the fastest growing economies in the EU.
