The collection, designed by British architect Graham Turner, is the first of its kind in the world.
Designed to resemble a marble column from a cathedral, it sits on a marble platform in the courtyard of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.
The marble floor, painted with the word “Slate” in gold letters, is decorated with dozens of ceramic tiles, each representing a different part of a sculpture.
The collection has an estimated value of $6.5 billion.
Turner, who was commissioned to design the collection by the British Museum, is credited with making the ceramic tiles one of the most successful pieces of contemporary art.
The pieces range in price from $4,800 for the marble marble to $4.8 million for the gold-painted ceramic.
“There is something magical about this piece,” Turner told the Associated Press.
“I thought about marble columns from a church or a temple, and I was fascinated with that.
So the idea of this was very much to make something that would look like a church from a different perspective.”
The marble columns can be viewed in their entirety in the gallery’s gallery atrium.
Turner’s other work includes a series of sculptures on stone walls that represent a series toads, a crocodile and a horse, among others.
The statues are in their original locations, but the columns are all painted with an accent of white on the outside of the statue, making them stand out.
The sculptures are all sculptural works and have not been altered since Turner’s design, but a recent installation at the National Museum of American History in Washington DC shows a different sculpture.
It is called “Duck & Goose,” a work by British artist David McKeown.
The work is in a gallery called “Grave in Time.”
The pieces are being exhibited at the British Library’s new permanent collection, the American Art Museum, in New York, as part of the project to restore a series that was taken down in 2012.
The new collection is slated to open in 2019.
In 2017, Turner was named the recipient of the Prix de France.
He is also the recipient, along with his wife, of the prestigious International Society of American Art Prize for his work on the collection.
