Pillars are architectural organs on which rest the loads of the structure of a building (frameworks, higher levels' masonry ...). Present on buildings all over the world for millennia, pillars are made to support and carry immeasurable vertical loads.
Pillars are mostly present at the entrance of properties but also on smaller buildings (eg pedestals, table legs ...). They also appear on the most beautiful buildings in the world such as those of the Pont du Gard, a model of Roman architecture still standing today !
The word pillar is also frequently used in our language to talk about the foundations of an idea or ideology (pillars of civilization, pillars of creation ...).
