Sculpture: Figurative Subjects: Base (Throne & Cushion) | Base Types Main Page

Principal Types of Bases (Throne & Cushion):
1. Throne Only
2. Lotus & Throne
3. Cushion
4. Other

There are four distinct types of seats in figurative art that can be classified as a throne or throne-like. The basic throne is usually square or a semi-circle. It can be simple in design and appear as if it is simply a raised platform, or cushion. The very ornate can also have legs beneath, plain or elaborate.
