art deco capitals fabric by sef on Spoonflower - custom fabric

Preview scale: 21.0 x 18.0 inches

Interlocking shell-shaped scales in an art deco style of tiling.
Art deco is a highly geometric style which was influenced in part by the resurgence of interest in Egyptian forms after the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun. A capital is the decorative top of a column or pillar (originally having a load-bearing function but sometimes merely there for show). Here they are arranged to interlock as shell-shaped scales (on the regular hexagon / triangle lattice) with the arch lines almost connecting and giving the impression of an ornamented headdress.

Any apparent jaggedness or glitches in the repeat are caused by a Spoonflower bug which squashes the image when applying rulers. See their undamaged version of the repeated image via the link given in the embed text or on the collection page.
