The doorway portrays Athena, the Greek Goddess of Knowledge looking outwards accompanied by the owl of wisdom. The carved keystone is part of the pedestrian archway leading into The Royal Academy Courtyard, Burlington House.. The heavy wrought iron gate is accurately reproduced using a brass etched fret through which light will fall in precise shadow whether lit from in front or behind. This is a popular classic bookend originally commissioned by The Royal Academy from Timothy in 1996
