Pillars: details of buildings are but rarely introduced into heraldry, but when pillars occur they somewhat resemble columns of the Tuscan order; plain Norman shafts with cushion capitals, however, are sometimes to be found. The capital, the base, and the pedestal are sometimes mentioned in the blazon. See also Arches.
