Here, probably, the wreaths were presented to the victors.
Above this comes a row of circular shields, adorned with intricate arabesques, while bands and wreaths of lilies are everywhere scupltured on the windows, balconies, tambours and cornices, adding lightness to the fabric. The whole is raised on a platform 7 ft.
The wreaths were so nearly alike that none of those who were with the king could point out any difference.
The queen was standing quite near to it with the two wreaths still in her hands.
