ATLANTES, CARYATIDS AND STONE HEADS

Atlantes, the plural of Atlas - in classical European architecture, an atlas (also known as an atlant, or atlante or atlantid; plural atlantes) is a stone architectural support sculpted in the form of a man, which may take the place of a column, a pier or a pilaster.
The term atlantes is the Greek plural of the name Atlas the Titan who was forced to hold the sky on his shoulders for eternity.

A caryatid is a sculpted female figure serving as an architectural support taking the place of a column or a pillar supporting an entablature on her head. The Greek term karyatides literally means "maidens of Karyai", an ancient town of Peloponnese.
