Egg and Dart
The iconic form of the egg and dart ornament is ubiquitous in Classical architecture and instantly recognisable despite the many stylistic variations to be found throughout ages and civilisations. Those with an understanding of Classical architecture will note that the egg and dart course in this piece is accentuated with a 'bead and reel' course below it.
That these motifs can still be seen adorning the cornices of contemporary buildings in all the world's major cities is testament to their enduring appeal.
This simple yet bold fragment conjures visions of the infamous temples of antiquity but makes just as much of a statement in a modern scheme as a wall mounted objet d'art or a tabletop curiosity.
