Quick Reference

1 Transitional early Gothic C12 carved ornament on each angle of a capital, essentially a large, broad, plain leaf resembling a water-lily or lily-pad, flowing out from above the astragal in a concave curve, then returning upwards in a convex curve, turning inwards at each angle under the abacus.

2 Classical ornament, often on a cyma reversa moulding, resembling a series of pointed tongue-like forms pointing downwards, with darts between them, also called hart's tongue, Lesbian, or lily-leaf, each tongue-form divided vertically by an incision. It is probably related to the lotus-leaf, or to ivy-leaves.

3 Long, feather-like unserrated leaf used by Palladio in his enrichment of the Ionic, Corinthian, and Composite Orders, also called stiff-leaf, and used as a series of vertical ornaments on friezes, etc.
