"It is doubtful that, either before or afterwards, was architectural decoration carried to such an extreme...As argued above, the building's upper zone, even a conjectural roofcomb, was distinguished by exceedingly ornate stuccowork. The building also bore end-grooved recessed panels on its sides and rear; moreover, much if not its entirety stood painted red. From appearances, what was erected persisted unaltered, save for radical restructuring of the basal masks and subtle modification of the upper-most panels."
