Supreme Court’s Gift Shop
During a visit to the Supreme Court’s gift shop, I discovered a few items for sale such as wooden and flat metal ornaments of the building. One impressive item stood out in the shop...a very large, finely-crafted plaster 3-D façade of the West Pediment (front view). The souvenir replica sculpture was created by British Artist Timothy Richard. Unfortunately the highest court in the land, does not yet have an online store, but I found the same item on Amazon. The Supreme Court of the United States Architectural Sculpture By Timothy Richardsis a good size measuring 6" high by 16" wide and 7" deep and has wonderful attention to detail.
