Double Akrokerama Brooch, extra large size
Ακροκέραμα (akrokerama) is the name given to typical designs found in terracotta on neo-classical buildings to decorate the edge of roof-tops. This motif is typical of Corinthian rhythm (borrowed also on Corinthian columns in classical architecture).
Over-all a very impressive and fine piece of jewelry.
