Foliate ceiling ornaments are available as usually in Autodesk (dwg), Encapsulated PostScript (eps) and Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format.


They are drawn in the style of the Italian Renaissance, have a square shape and have been originally applied as ceiling decoration. As you can see in the pictures, these ornaments can also be foliate borders. With slight modification, you can turn them into corner ornaments. Both ornaments consist of motifs (ornamental dolphin, Grotesque Foliated Green Man, vase... ) that can be singled out and used separately. Both ornaments are vectorized (traced) by hand.
