a momentary vignette
finial
June 3

An element used especially in Gothic architecture, a finial is the crowning ornament or detail located at the top of a gable, spire, or similar forms. Traditionally, a finial is a stylized fleur-de-lis or detached foliated form, but many other styles and designs do exist... from simple decorative balls to elaborately carved figures.
