|Series/Report no.:||Basham Collection|
|Description:||The shaft is proportionately short but the capital assumes enormous proportions and divides into arms and brackets decorated with fantastic beasts and tear-drop pendentives. These gigantic pillars actually support nothing. The roof is flat and is usually formed of slabs of stone laid side by side or, as here, of corrugated iron.|
