Any ideas what that is? Here's a hint, it's not just a piece of rock! It's a piece of history!
We've got a souvenir from the J. Paul Getty Museum in the form of a piece of travertine, the stone used to build the museum as well as its original structure the Getty Villa. The stone was mined from quarries in Bagni di Tivoli, Rome, the same place mined for stone to build great structures of antiquity like the Colosseum. Stone for the Getty Museum dates between 8,000 and 80,000 years old.
On top of that, the piece we have is signed by the architect Richard Meier. The story goes a former staff member had the fantastic opportunity to meet the architect during construction. Richard Meier graciously signed a piece of the stone, immortalizing his signature just as the limestone has immortalized nature. It's a part of Greco-Roman and Los Angeles history you won't find anywhere else but on eBay.
