Decorated Cornice - Roman empire - 1st-2nd Century AD

A Cornice was used in Ancient Rome as a decorative molding that crowned Ancient Roman buildings and temples for beautification purposes. While the architectural term cornice originates from the Italian word for a ledge, its use was adopted from ancient Greek buildings and reused to suit roman architectural preference. In antiquity, the cornice was an important component of the entablature, just below the covering of an important structure.

This roman cornice would have played an important architectural role protecting the walls of large rooms or buildings adding to the building an ornamental sculptural element. The carved marble features bands of decorative patterns that would have indicated the importance of the structure and can be displayed vertically or horizontally depending on the space or your desire.
