7/7 Egyptian portal and
- two pairs of sphinxes
Ornamental garden building Egyptian portal and 2 pairs of sphinxes.
Circa 1856, by John Bateman. Stone. Two pairs of Egyptian sphinxes of
reduced scale, set apart by approximately 3m, mark short entrance axis
to Egyptian-style portal with coved lintol carved with pseudo-Pharaonic
device. Clipped yew hedges form the bulk and the artfulness of the
composition, both flanking in tiered columns and massed up behind the
portal in a solid wall. Certainly the collaborative work of Bateman
and his friend, the painter E.W. Cooke. (Diaries of E.W. Cooke [unpublished]).
