Here is a reproduction of the Rostra of Augustus, an ancient Roman building as seen in the first or second century. This monument is still visible today, it is located on the Forum of Rome just between the Temple of Saturn and the Arch of Septimius Severus.
It was used as a podium to gain height and this make speeches to the people.
The pieces in Dark Green on the face are the bronze spurs of the ships of Cleopatra's fleet to recover after her defeat by Augustus.
The golden column represents the starting point of all the Roman roads.
The dome at the back, whose brick base is very well preserved today, represents the navel of Rome.
