Ansel Adams Mantel

"In a contrarian touch, the long, west-facing wall with its potentially great view of the ocean held but one window and a huge stone fireplace with a twenty-four-foot-long mantel. At the mantel's center presided Ansel's mammoth Chinese temple drum, nearly six feet in diameter, long since acquired from William Colby."
