    @CSK: Didn’t recognize it from that angle. I don’t remember the dome having a “bulge” at its base. But from this picture I see it does have a step down between the dome and the pillars below.

    *Well, we tried to behave for Dr.J. Really we did. Just ignore the empty booze cupboard. It wasn’t Lumpy, honest Dr. T!
