Pictured is the installation of the flames on the south front of the house. The flames have been newly carved by stone-masons Adam and Lisa off site. It took them two weeks to carve each flame. The stone was then gilded. In the picture, Simon and Oliver are fitting the flames on top of the balustrade. The gilded shape on top of the central urn of the south front however is not a flame but a pomegranate.
