The Acanthus leaves on antique ornaments have been used as jewellery since ancient times, the forms of representation change in the style epochs. It is a characteristic element of Corinthian capitals in ancient Greece, but Carolingian art also knew it as a capital ornament, and in the Romanesque, it was an effective decoration. In the Gothic, it is replaced with native plants. It is an important vegetable motif in the 16th century. The Baroque took it up again, in the Régense it was often associated with handwork, during the Classical period people returned to ancient architecture, and so it experienced its rebirth.
