under cobweb veils

Sitting, today, in chair that I don't normally occupy in my study (LucyFur had pushed me out of my desk chair, and who am I to argue with her?), and this meant that I saw this carved wooden pillar in a shaft of sunlight.  It came from a shop somewhere down the Cowley Road, in Oxford, twenty or so year ago - some of you might even remember it from my office in the St Cross Building.  So I don't know anything about its real provenance or function, but I've always really liked its two tiers of women (only the top one is visible here, of course).  Ideas welcome about its true context ...
