Quick Reference

Repetitive zigzag or lozenge patterns formed by embedding many clay cones around 10 cm (nearly 4 inches) long, with black, red, or buff heads, in mud walls, as at the Sumerian temples of Uruk (now Warka, Iraq), dating from c. 3500–3000 bc, so a very early type of architectural enrichment.
