German CZT Simone Menzel also joins us to share her lovely ribbon-style Egganddart tangle, her fifth tangle on the site.

Simone writes,

The world has changed in a surreal way caused by the Corona virus and we all do the best staying at home and staying healthy…

During a walk through our very empty hometown Dresden I recently explored a very interesting architecture pattern which is called “Egg and dart”.

I drew this pattern several times and finally deconstructed as a tangle.

It is easy to draw and has lots of possible variations.

This is but one sample of the Egganddart variations Simone explores on her blog:

Decorative architectural crown moldings have a huge array of beautiful designs and as Simone notes the Egg-and-Dart pattern has been widely used throughout the ages. Wikipedia tells us:

Egg-and-dart, also known as egg-and-tongue, egg and anchor, or egg and star, are terms that refer to an ornamental device adorning the fundamental quarter-round, convex ovolo profile of molding, consisting of alternating details on the face of the ovolo—typically an egg-shaped object alternating with a V-shaped element (e.g., an arrow, anchor, or dart). The device is carved or otherwise fashioned into ovolos composed of wood, stone, plaster, or other materials.

Egg-and-dart enrichment of the ovolo molding of the Ionic capital was used by ancient Greek builders so it’s found in ancient Greek architecture (e.g., the Erechtheion at the Acropolis of Athens), was used later by the Romans and continues to adorn capitals of modern buildings built in Classical styles (e.g., the Ionic capitals of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C.). The molding design element continues in use in neoclassical architecture.

Simone illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Egganddart here on her blog where you can enjoy Simone’s beautiful photographs of her Dresden home town — how wonderful it looks without humans cluttering up the view! 🙂 — and her explorations of this versatile architectural tangle. Note that you can click on all of Simone’s images to view larger versions of Dresden, and her steps illustration.

Your thanks helps motivate them to continue to share! And please share a link to your favorite tangles on social media. Thanks!
