The Temple, Fleet Street, is at the centre of the legal community of England.. (Prior to this the courts travelled with the King and had no base.) This bridged boundary gate was built to divide the old walled City of London from the land outside which belonged to the King. It was locked every night and until the 18th century the heads of criminals were displayed on spikes above the roof. This model is detailed on all sides and is the only model apart from the Temple of the Four Winds to be so completed. Features of the Temple Bar model include the lead figures of King Charles I and II, Queen Caroline and James I, the Royal lions, unicorns and the city griffins This limited edition of 150 models was commissioned by the Inns of Court of America in 1997. All pieces are signed, dated, numbered and certificated.
