Here you can download a simple design called ‘Ancient Greek Marquetry Ornament’, created to decorate square surfaces.

The term ‘marquetry’ is included in its name because the design originates from an old book, as the image of a decoration made with marquetry technique. When you look at it, you will immediately recognize that it belongs to the ancient Greek style of decorative art (Palmette motif). Square ornaments of this appearance were often used for decoration in Ancient Greece, especially in architecture. To this day, on various buildings dating from the time of Ancient Greece, it is possible to see not only similar ornaments, but also completely different ornaments, only formed from the same motifs as this one here.
