I found this ornamental moulding on a trip to the Indian desert state of Rajasthan where I work with people who specialize in recovering visually and historically interesting elements from homes and buildings that are torn down. I designed the steel stand and had it welded and assembled in a small metal workshop in Rasjasthan.
