Skilled stone carvers crafted the interlocking geometric designs which surround the main entrance of the Headquarters Building.  Each piece is carefully finished and cut to precisely fit with the adjoining section as they are put into place.

Artisans painstakingly prepare the edges so that each seam meets perfectly.
