Abstract

We present a physically reasonable source for an static, axially-symmetric solution to the Einstein equations. Arguments are provided, supporting our belief that the exterior space-time produced by such source, describing a quadrupole correction to the Schwarzschild metric, is particularly suitable (among known solutions of the Weyl family) for discussing the properties of quasi-spherical gravitational fields.
