This metal garden obelisk will bring a touch of the American South to your garden
In 2018, to mark its 20th birthday, Classic Garden Elements extended its range of classic garden obelisks to include three new metal obelisks. The design of these new obelisks is based on historic American models, which – unlike those of Classic Garden Elements – were made out of wood. The Hannibal Garden Obelisk stands at 220 cm and has a diameter of 111 cm. This stable garden obelisk weighs 38 kilograms and the structure consists of one piece of metal.
This is a truly spectacular piece, with its exotic, almost tropical wings that branch out symmetrically on all four sides, conjuring up thoughts of palm trees and sunshine and glorious tropical beaches. In case you’re wondering, the rose obelisk is named after a town called Hannibal in Missouri, in the American South – not after the Carthaginian general and conqueror Hannibal Barca. This sleepy little town is actually the hometown of Mark Twain, the famous American writer and novelist. The original wooden Hannibal garden obelisk stood in the front garden of a small, pillared mansion. So … are you thinking of Gone with the Wind and Scarlett O’Hara yet?
