Damier (3D chessboard pattern ©)

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

Geometrical pattern of alternating recessed and protruding squares, ordered in a chessboard pattern, often used on corniches (cornices) and tailloirs (abacuses).
The right hand side chapiteau (capital) of the portail (portal) of the Saint-Barthélémy in Farges-lès-Mâcon has a damier pattern.
