To dream of a pedestal represents admiration, recognition, or honor. Being looked up to. Total respect. You or someone else is the object of admiration. It may also reflect a person or situation that is being made a perfect example.
Negatively, a pedestal may be a sign that you are receiving unwanted attention or that someone else feels you are more important that you think you are. It may also be a sin that your ego is becoming over-inflated or that you are showing off.
Example: A man dreamed of seeing his wife stand on and then fall off. In waking life he liked supporting her career until he realized she would never leave it to become a mother.
