I 'Met' a Greek Column...

Moving to the inside of the Met museum, I saw a marble column from the Temple of Artemis. Even if the omitted shaft parts were included, it still would be ten feet shorter than the 69 feet tall Egyptian obelisk outside of the Museum.

You can see in the reference photo, I flipped the two observers at the left, and made the man look more like he was looking up. For simplicity's sake, I omitted some of the other visitors, but I kept the all-important guard. However, he looks rather puny, compared to the tall vase behind him and the column.
