Columns, Arches and Cloisters

Marco Polo is describing a bridge stone by stone.
“But which is the stone that supports the bridge?” asks Kubla Khan.
“The bridge isn’t supported by any one stone,” replies Marco Polo, “ but by the line of the arch they form.”
Kubla Khan remains silent, reflecting.
Then he says: “Why do you speak to me of the stones? It is only the arch that matters to me.”
Polo answers: “Without stones there is no arch.”
