    The structural post ( I believe steel 4"x4") is enclosed on the back side of the opening(niche), we built roughly a 16"x16" surround with a niche cavity approximately 12 inches deep and wide and put lighting in it. I think some of the column finish is built out of wood and some is drywall finish. Hopefully this helps.

Light it up. Integrate downlighting, uplighting or a lit display box, like the one shown here, to showcase a sculpture...
