The mansion is Belmead, the circular staircase from the first to the second floor. Overlaid is the Confederate Pyramid in Richmond's Hollywood Cemetery that was erected in 1869 as a memorial to the confederate dead buried in the cemetery...about 18,000. It was also erected to honor "The Lost Cause." Sadly, this lost cause lives on.
