How beautiful is this!
Martin from Stone: Another step forward for me in the pursuit of knowledge, I had never heard of such a thing before
Very clever!
Martin from Stone: They had abundant time to think and then create in those far distant times
What a thoughtful and wonderful detail!
Martin from Stone: There were several such seats all with different carvings

Very interesting isn't it. I wonder what the original carver was trying to convey here?
Martin from Stone: There is definitely a strong story there

And it is surprising how much width these stalls allow Martin.
Martin from Stone: And we thought we were there with extra wide airline seats !
I never think to look for this sort of thing, it looks as though part of the carving is a Dragon.
Martin from Stone: Yes it was a complex carving
This is lovely. I knew Lisl would appreciate it.
Martin from Stone: We are so fortunate to have such heritage to appreciate
