In ancient times, ornamentation was a defining element in the construction of Greek temples. Greek column heads made in this age were given ornaments that are still known today, such as the acanthus leaf carving on the closing element of the Corinthian column head. In Europe, acanthus was used as a motif in the first millennium, based on an antique pattern. It was very often used in book painting, with antique forms and motifs prevalent in book printing. In the following centuries, the acanthus leaf was especially popular with the Baroque.
