A diversion


Travertine is a tough, generous stone that will deliver whatever you ask of it, while making you look good.  Unless you want detail, in which case it will make you look thick.  Here, I'll ask for nothing, just buff it up a bit and let it shine.
The gnarly streaks are old glue from a previous architectural incarnation. 
"That cornerstone shall be sculpture, that builders did despise."
Thank you. Thank you very much.
