Dimitri, an art history major, was inspired to create his rendition of the Confederacy in furniture, after relocating to South Carolina. He executed this work in Renaissance style with lionís claw feet.
He replicated his arms for the arm rests, which terminate in a fist. Reverse carvings on the top of each arm intersect with the backrest.
The back panels feature two elegant Confederate soldiers admiring a beautiful southern belle.
The figures are carved in high relief and then painted with oil color. They are classically framed within running Acanthus leaf ornamentation.
The crown represents two jazzy Confederate cherubs outfitted with period hats. One is playing his horn, while the other holds a torch to illuminate the sheet music to Dixieland. Two historical Confederate flags are flying in the background.
The bottom cross-member features a 3/4 life-size Confederate hat, carved from walnut and oil painted.
The 100% wool upholstery fabric is civil war re-enactment uniform fabric provided by the Quartermaster Shoppe.
