Acanthus-Leaf Corbels Series

The acanthus leaf can be found throughout architectural ornamentation in Greek, Roman and Renaissance structures. It has provided a source of decorative design for thousands of years and is incorporated in any number of products today. You can find the acanthus leaf incorporated in door handle designs, in rosettes on many products, climbing the sides of pilasters and wrapping the surface of ceiling medallions. Also found in both ancient architecture and in contemporary designs are acanthus leaf corbels.

Many types of plants are represented in carved corbels created over the many generations and architectural eras where they have been in use. Floral patterns and rosettes can be found in early corbels. Other traditional choices include oak leaf clusters and grape vines carved into either the side of the corbel or, if there is sufficient width, onto the front of the piece. The acanthus leaf corbel is among the oldest of the traditional themes because the acanthus was a common plant in the Greek Isles. There was a Greek city named Acanthus; Acantha was a nymph in Greek mythology associated with the plant.
