Columns and pilasters made of stone
The decorative column is not only historical, but also widely used in modern times, an architectural detail. Almost no serious architectural structure is complete without this element.
At one time, Rudolf Wittkower wrote: "The pilaster became a logical modification of the column for the purposes of decorating buildings: it is a flat column that has lost its three-dimensionality and tactility."
As a decorative decoration of the exterior of buildings, columns made of various materials are an integral part of the interior decoration of stylized, aesthetically elevated spaces.
