Caryatid At Last!
Peter has been more than a little anxious to install the caryatid on the East wall of the North Star suite since she was sculpted some months ago but had to wait until the construction, sculpted concrete and painting were totally finished. With each long step Peter’s urge to install the figurehead became stronger. The painters insisted that they be allowed to finish detailing their work before they would let him have the man-lift. Detail work of this quality simply cannot be rushed and it took what it needed to take before the wall was declared done. Today, at long last it was time to lift the heavy figure and bolt it permanently in place. The caryatid fit like a glove and in a few short minutes it was in place to stay. One exterior wall of the North Star suite is now complete.
