Atlantes holding up fresh air, Mortimer Street, W1
The location of these atlantes is shown in TQ2981 : Avella's Café, Mortimer Street, W1. In Greek architecture, atlantes are figures or half figures of men, used as columns to support an entablature. The term is the plural of Atlas, and originates from the giant in Greek mythology who had to support the heavens upon his shoulders - see LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) .
