6. Decorative Urns
The highly stylized decorative marble urns located in the sculptural niches on either side of the stage are replicas of the original urns. After decades of exposure to the elements, the original urns were beyond repair and thus replaced. Each urn sits atop an intricately sculpted pedestal and base decorated with motifs from classical art and architecture. Urns have been used as funerary symbols since the ancient era.
