Crochet (hook ornament ©)

The translation in the title is followed by this sign ©; this means that it has been "invented" by me.

Ornament in the shape of a stylized curved flower stem with flower or flower bud.
The shape resembles a hook or crochet hook, hence the name.
This ornament is often used on chapiteaux (capitals).
In the photo a baie (wall opening) in the clocher (bell tower) of the Saint-Gervais-et-Saint-Protais in Ozenay.
