Thank you Graham. Yes I agree on that point, it was at the time still incomplete, many of the smaller decorative pieces needed to be cast and or mounted.

Thank you very much Juleann.
Yes you are correct, hard work and craftmanship is the key. They created casting moulds by hand, these were then filled with a mixture of white cement and ground glass a great work of art.
