Elinor Goulding Smith's Great Big Messy Book: Figure 36

We are making here the really minimum Greek temple, a Greek temple boiled down to essentials. I have shown, therefore, a temple with only twelve columns. You could, if you wished, make yours larger. However, I think it wise for a beginner to stick exactly to the illustrations.

Choose, now, twelve nice, even, square pieces of stone (or marble if you prefer), and place them evenly around the plinth, being careful to line them up precisely, so the edges are parallel to the edges of the plinth. Use a ruler to get them an even distance from the edges of the plinth.

See Fig. 37.
