A Caryatid is a female figure that serves as an architectural support in the place of a column or pillar. It is often associated with Greek and Greek Revival architecture. The term Caraytid originated from the term karaytides which literally means “maidens of Karyai”, an ancient town of Peloponnese. Girls from Karyai were considered especially beautiful, tall, strong and capable.
