A large stele is a purely decorative Miscellaneous structure. A stele provides less beauty than most sculptures and require more resources, but have no quality. They cannot be roofed over, and, despite appearances, do not count as a wall.
They are the smaller, less beautiful version of the grand stele.
Since they cannot be roofed over, that all but excludes them for any "indoor" beautification. However, as outdoor art, they have their uses.
Large steles provide half the amount of beauty, and health as grand steles for half the material and build cost, while being 1 tile smaller in both axes. They are also sometimes required for monuments. However, neither stele type should be constructed. While they have no quality, and thus you can build steles without skilled artists, this is not cost or space effective.
For the same cost as a single grand stele, you can construct 2.5 small sculptures. Small sculptures have 25 beauty at Poor quality, and even a Skill 0 artist will average 0.9 Poor quality or better sculptures with the same resource investment, each one of which offers almost as much beauty while also taking up significantly less space. Even a modestly skilled artist will quickly and massively outstrip the beauty per material of steles of both kinds. Thus steles should only be built when required by a monument, and those found in ruins are better deconstructed for their blocks than integrated into builds.
