Thursday’s Special: Pick a Word

Protuberant Phalanges

Detail from bronze sculpture, Palais Garnier, Paris, France

Detail from a large bronze torchère at the foot of the grand staircase in the Palais Garnier Opera House. Two large female figures, resting on a raised pedestal, hold bouquets of lights aloft. The feet of the lower figure break out of the plain of the pedestal and protrude into space.
