If you need 3D model inspired by ancient Greek culture, this palmette frieze bas-relief may satisfy all your requirements.

A palmette is an ancient ornamental motif based on the fan-shaped leaves of a palm tree. This free 3D model is derived from Romanesque frieze ornament (13th century).

Frieze patterns like this one are characteristic of ancient Greek and Roman decorative art and architecture. Similar patterns were also used in styles inspired by ancient art like Romanesque and Classicism. Considering the history of art, the palmette motif has been one of the most frequently used artistic motifs (design element) in history. For this reason, and because of the frequent need for frieze 3D models, we have decided to draw this bas-relief and offer it to you for free. It has been drawn using the 2D pattern that you can download by clicking on the following link: Antefix in the form of a palmette frieze pattern.

The 3D model has been drawn with precision, and apart from scaling to the desired dimensions or making a longer frieze from it, you will probably have no need to modify it.
