INSPIRATION:The word "akrokeramos" in ancient Greek means the end of the tile. In english, the term "antefix" (from Latin antefigere) is used to describe the vertical block which terminates the covering tiles of a tiled roof.In ancient Greek Architecture the closed front surface of the "akrokeramos" blocked out the birds and snakes and with its weight held the rest of the tiles in their place. With the collapse of the ancient world, the "akrokeramos" disappears, to reappear in the Renaissance and Neoclassic Era. The akrokeramos is often decorated with plant themes such as the anthemion. The anthemion, a term derived from the word “anthos” = flower in ancient Greek, symbolizes wealth and prosperity for the Greeks. It is considered a feature of neoclassical architecture and is a diachronic symbol of Hellenism
