I liked the part where she told me the thing was originally movable therefore could stand earthquakes. As my lowly brain found it hard to picture her descriptions, I asked if she had at least a photo or a drawing that I can see. That got her also wondering and told me she realizes she actually needs it and will ask the engineering office to give her something! Well, I would suppose the base was ball-like and just supported by pegs to become stationary. I think hehe!
