Barsoomian Walls

  Barsoomian Walls  
 

The stones were carried down the walls in an irregular fringe for a few feet, where they appeared to hang like a beautiful and gorgeous drapery against the white marble of the wall. . . In that single room was a vast treasure equal to the wealth of many a large city.
 — Edgar Rice Burroughs, The Chessmen of Mars
