Fragment of Romanesque decorative frieze - Limestone

Fragment of Romanesque decorative frieze.
Limestone. Length 32,5 cm.
Decorated with an interlacing of palmettes, probably of arum.
Mid-12th century. France.
Visible gaps, very good stuff.

From an old French collection, and from the art market.

Frequent in the illuminated manuscripts, the textile and the goldsmith’s works, this decorative motif was also widespread in the Romanesque friezes and cornices, as well as on many capitals.
