Something extra

Why is there a point on this arch? Why is there an arch at all? It serves no structural purpose; it's entirely decorative. But it adds charm and shows the architect was proud of what he was doing. Now the structure sits abandoned on an island but it's still nice to look at and walk around.

Add something extra to something with purpose and maybe it will have value when its purpose is gone.
