acanthus (motif) (plant-derived motifs, motifs, ... Design Elements (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Stylized ornamental motif used especially in architecture and decorative arts, based on a characteristic Mediterranean plant with jagged leaves, Acanthus spinosus. It was first used by the Greeks in the 5th century BCE on temple roof ornaments, on wall friezes, and on the capital of the Corinthian column, such as at Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens. Later the Romans used the motif in their Composite order, in which the capital of the column is a three-dimensional combination of spirals resembling rams' horns and full-bodied acanthus leaves. The acanthus leaf has been a popular motif in carved furniture decoration since the Renaissance.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 以具有鋸齒狀葉片的地中海特有植物:刺葉薊(Acanthus spinosus)為根據的風格化裝飾紋飾,特別用於建築與裝飾藝術。西元前五世紀時,率先由希臘人用於神殿屋頂裝飾、牆上柱子的橫飾帶,以及柯林斯式立柱的柱頭,例如雅典的奧林匹亞宙斯神殿。爾後,羅馬人將此紋飾用於複合柱式,其柱頭的立體組合為類似公羊角的螺旋與龐大的葉薊片。自文藝復興時期起,葉薊即成為盛行的雕刻家具裝飾紋飾。 
Dutch ..... Te gebruiken voor de gestileerde decoratieve motieven gebaseerd op de diepe zaagvormige en uitgeschulpte bladeren en gebogen stengels van de acanthus-plant. 
Spanish ..... Úsese para el motivo decorativo convencional basado en las profundamente dentadas y festoneadas hojas y tallos serpentinos de la planta del acanto.
