    ...should they have kept it when they redecorated the living room? Wouldn't it have fit well into the new, gold design?

    And just what were the Ewings hiding when they removed it??

    It was concealing a portal to a disruptive space time vortex. That’s why hair lengthens on characters in the time it takes from moving from the patio to the hallway. It can also be used to populate Southfork with rooms that cannot be accommodated either by the house size or the laws of physics. Sometimes it can malfunction and distort the faces of matriarchal figures, but this rarely lasts more than 8 months.

    Looks like it was stolen from the Wizard of Oz's castle. Otherwise, it's a truly bizarre centerpiece decoration.
    Did no-one think, hey that's a nice spot for a painting. ?

    How about a painting of Aaron Southworth's mysterious wife whom, I believe, was the estranged sister of Jacqueline Perrault's mother.

    It doesn't even look like marble. And it's so pointless. Hardly a display of wealth and opulence. It's the size of an average kitchen chopping board. They shouldn't have even bothered with the paint effect. They should have hung Miss Ellie over it, in painted form of course.

    Perhaps it was once a mirror. After performing her matrimonial duties Sue Ellen sashays down the famous Southfork staircase. She grabs a fine bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. She turns and meanders up to the mirror;

    Mirror, mirror on the wall.

    Who is the true matriarch of Southfork after all?

    Damn thing shatters.
    Next morning Theresa discovers pieces of glass and quickly attempts to hoover up the mess but is confronted by Miss Ellie. Knowing she is about to host the fine ladies of Braddock Miss Ellie ushers for Ray. Upon his arrival she asks, "Ray. Go up into the attic and fetch me that fine piece of marble we kept from the original Southworth house." Ray replies. "Southfork has an attic?" Miss Ellie responds with a short, "Yes Ray. Southfork has an attic. It's where I keep my fine collection of shotguns."

    clever of Ray to pretend he didn't know there was a Southfork attic, when that's where he used to take Lucy when the hayloft was undergoing maintenance..

    You know what I think? I think it *was* a mirror, but it was reflecting the bright lights used for the filming, so they had to cover it up.
