Features, such as, rotation and or lighting of the object can be built into the pedestal. The rotation can be in the top of the pedestal where only the object rotates. Alternatively the rotation can be at the bottom of the pedestal where the object and the pedestal rotate together. This feature is well suited to larger works. Objects can be bottom lit or in some cases top lit. Bottom lighting can be combined with a top insert rotator to provide striking presentation of transparent and translucent objects. For sculpture with decoration on the bottom, a clear top combined with a recessed mirror allows viewing the bottom without the need to handle the piece.
