Hi Margaret – Lisa's measurements are just about right on. The base of the “first floor” is 1-1/2″ wide, with the width of the largest roof being about 2″. The smaller roof reminds me of the Circus Tent roof…I don't have that particular solid, but if anyone does, could they please measure the tent roof?
The different colored stones on the door represent all the different shades of green and brown enamels, which Lisa was able to pick up on very beautifully.
You have to remember…in the Orient, color is part of their culture…this piece tells me Mr. Strongwater has been there more than once. He understands their love and respect for true, deep colors. It's all blended just beautifully.
I think after you study it for a bit, and if you're familiar with the Orient even a little, you'll begin to understand the beauty of the piece. Again, this is only MHO! <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />
