word of the week: ANTHEMION
ANTHEMION: an ornament of honeysuckle or palm leaves in a radiating cluster. It is also called honeysuckle ornament.
Anthemia (plural) are often found in groups. They might be seen in a group of three on the corners of a pediment or many more forming a line as pictured below on the Museum of Science and Industry. However on a small building in Pilsen (1443 W. 18th St.), one large anthemion sits proudly alone at the top of the building as the major focal point of the structure.
