If a masonry dome is placed on top
of a square or hexagonal or octagonal room
the dome and the room will fit lop
sided, not at  all, not now, not any time soon.

But by making the dome and the room both fit
and being creative and inventive
the mason contrives a dome that will sit
upon a contrivance called a pedentive.
