Definition
an architectural feature at the top of a roof, usually dome-shaped and opened by windows or columns
  • For as in landscape gardening, a spire, cupola, monument, or tower of some sort, is deemed almost indispensable to the completion of the scene; so no face can be physiognomically in keeping without the elevated open-work belfry of the nose.
