On this page you can download an antefix frieze pattern with a palmette ornamental motif.

Antefix is an architectural detail, a vertical embossed plaque placed at the lowest parts of the roof, whose role is to facilitate water runoff. In Ancient Greece and Rome it was a very common architectural element that had both a practical and decorative role. The palmette is a fan-shaped decorative motif consisting of stylized palm leaves. It used to be very common in Ancient Egyptian art, Ancient Greece and Rome, as well as all periods of art and architecture that looked up to Antiquity  (renesansa, klasicizam...). This antefix pattern is based on an image found in a catalogue of plaster decorations from the early 20th century.
