This charming fragment of frieze was made in France during the 14th century. It comes from a blind frieze decorated with openwork plant motifs. This architectural element bears witness to the virtuosity of the plastic artists during the Gothic period, managing to confer an immense lightness to the material used, bringing the result close to a stone lace. Moreover, the fact that the piece is openwork also refers to the intrinsic link between the church and the church, the institution and the building. Indeed, the surrounding scholasticism, and the clarity of its purpose, evolves in parallel with an architecture rich in meaning and legibility. Our piece is quite demonstrative of this plastic impulse, and symbolizes the whole from which it was supposed to come.
