Spacing of the Wings

As one would expect in perspective staging, the distance between the Serlian wings decreases from downstage to upstage, and the depth of the perspective face decreases as well.

Cross over
At the rear of the stage, beyond the three scenes of relief, is a screen placed three feet four inches from the back wall, providing a cross-over passage from stage left to right.

Setting of the Wings
In the drawing below, John Webb indicates the placement of the Serlian wings in both plan (on the left) and elevation.
