So...What Kind of Column is P-Mac's?

Stuff I didn't know.

The stout Doric columns... are traditionally associated with the form of men, and were used in ancient Rome for temples to warrior gods like Mars.

Another type of column, called the Ionic, is recognizable by the round scrolls in its capital. The slender proportions of these columns were understood in ancient times as imitating a motherly woman and so were identified with mothers and maternity.

Well. Time to be more observant of columnular proportionality, right?
