Hi Martin,

Thanks for posting those illustrations. I understand why you find Rageth's ideas about the ensi compelling. A bit far-fetched, it seems, yet ingenious as well. And, as you say, it takes all of the elements of that rather odd layout into account.

The one that got me was Fig. 56, all those chaps with arms in the air. They must have been extremely tired by the end of that ceremony.

On the larger issue, we will have to wait for an especially early ensi to surface with more anthropomorphic candelabra.
