3D models in the universal OBJ format of architectural decorations, patterns. The use of these elements in the design of the exterior is due to the adherence to the classical canons in the design of the facade of the house. The desire to imitate the complex geometry of natural forms is expressed in this type of architectural decor.
A caryatid (ancient Greek Καρυάτις, plural: Καρυάτιδες) is a sculptural female figure acting as a column or pilaster, with an entablature resting on its head. The most typical example is the Tribune of the Caryatids at the Erechtheion, one of the temples of the Athenian Acropolis in Athens. The name comes from the ancient city of Carias (Καρυές) in Laconia, where the feast of the girls who danced in honor of Artemis Caryatides was celebrated. On the other hand, the history of Vitruvius indicates that this city was an ally of the Persians during the medical wars, their inhabitants were exterminated by other Greeks, and their women were turned into slaves and were doomed to carry the heaviest loads. Instead of typically Greek columns, they are built in such a way that they are doomed to bear the weight of the temple forever.
In Egyptian hieroglyphics, the cartouche / kɑːrˈtuːʃ / is an oval with a line at one end tangent to the oval, indicating that the accompanying text is a royal name. The first examples of the cartouche are associated with the pharaohs at the end of the Third Dynasty, but this feature did not become widespread until the beginning of the Fourth Dynasty under Pharaoh Snefer. While a cartouche is usually vertical with a horizontal line, if it better fits the title, it can be horizontal with a vertical line at the end (in the reading direction). The ancient Egyptian word “cartouche” was a shenu, and a cartouche was an extended ring of shenu. Demotic script reduced the cartouche to a pair of brackets and a vertical line.
The term “cartouche” was first used by French soldiers, who believed that the symbol they so often saw on the ruins of the pharaohs they encountered resembled a paper powder cartridge for a muzzle-loading firearm (cartouche in French).
