I think it's bigger in Europe, and I know if you read the history book they say there are more in French-inspired parts of New Orleans.

That sidewalk drawing is amazing!

I saw lots of quatrefoils in Europe, usually on churches or other religious buildings. I tried to take pictures of all the quatrefoils I saw. Someday when I have a scanner, I'll post all the pics.

Italy and Spain have lots of them too, I believe....

While I don't have a picture, I used to work at Chili's, and the tiled tables have tons of quatrafoils all over them!

Lol...I do not heart it either! I quit about a week ago because they're awful with scheduling and the trainers/managers kept treating me like I was dumb.

One of our sisters who graduated this past spring has worked there for over a year, is a trainer/bartender, and has been doing corporate hostess training for the region, as well. So hating Chili's isn't exactly a Phi Mu thing.

Smile THe Midland Theater in Kansas City

Has anyone ever been to the Midland Theater in Kansas City? We went last night for the Josh Groban concert and I was amazed. The entire ceiling was covered in quatrefoils. It was just beautiful!

More quatrafoils!

I was sitting in my "Survey of Western Art" class today, taking notes for all I was worth. We're on Late Gothic art (fascinating, I know). The lecturer put up some slides from a frescoed chapel in Italy to draw attention to the details in the paintings. The whole thing is done in frames, where the borders of each picture are decorated to look like actual frames, not just painted-on borders.

Well, in the frame of one picture were two portraits of saints painted inside two quatrafoils! I know it's a popular design in Europe, but it just made my day to see that.

A quatrefoil is a rounded rectangle shape with 4 arrow like points coming out of the sides of the rectangle. It is sometimes found in European renaissance art and architecture as well as different religious objects. It does have a *special* meaning to us and I like it becuase it is a unique shape.
