The Composite Order was develeoped by the Romans and is exceptionally similar to the
Corinthian Order.  Our Modern Composite capital design unites acanthus leaves in two rows,
 where the top row meets a diagonal eight-volute Ionic capital.  The significance behind the
Composite Order, according to the Romans, revealed both wisdom and beauty – which can
 be interpreted (in today's architecture) as being both structural and decorative - supportive
 and elegant.  Review our PolyStone® fiberglass composite column dimensions and specs,
 below, to match the column sizes inherent to your exterior project or interior project.
