Rage. Goddess, sing the rage of Peleus' son Achilleus,
murderous, doomed, that cost the Achaeans countless losses,
hurling down to the House of Death so many sturdy souls,
great fighters' souls, but made their bodies carrion,
feasts for the dogs and birds,
and the will of Zeus was moving toward its end.
---Homer, the wandering kithara player (edited Robert Fagles' translation)
the solid brass ram's head-and-foot legs form a tripod which supports, at ram's head height, a foot-and-a-half diameter marble piece thru which the lamp support post rises and holds with variable height nine lamps radiating spoke-like out.
