Quatrefoils

I have seen quatrefoils in some random places.

My Mom lives in New Mexico, and I spotted one in a ceiling window at a restaurant where we ate.

I was shopping in an outdoor mall in Birmingham, and noticed one of the fountains was quatrefoil-shaped. (There are several lion sculptures that sit in another fountain at the same mall!)

My boyfriend has a big portrait of a lion in his living room, and upon closer inspection, I discovered a small, golden quatrefoil in the corner!

Kind of makes me wonder about the whether the people who made these things are of any affiliation with Phi Mu.

There are quite a few quatrefoil fountains at the Summit Everytime I pass them (which is often) I always think about Phi Mu

I guess I must be completely unobservant because I've never noticed the lion statue in the fountain. I have some errands to run there this weekend...I'll have to take note!

I was in my boyfriend's grandparent's house over Spring Break a few weeks ago and looked up and his grandmother had two wooden tray's BOTH in the shape of a quatrafoil hanging on the wall! I got all excited when we left, telling him about it. He just thought I was crazy though

did you want a link to how the quatrefoil looks, or how the street chalk drawings look 3D? ;-)

The quatrefoil is in so many churches in Europe because it represents four circles overlapping symbolizing the four gospels, and the four points are liek a compass spreading the four gospels in the four directions, to spread Christianity throughout the world.

There's your fun fact for the day!

Sorry, it's been a while since I've checked back in here... the lions in the fountain are down near Saks and High Country.

What part of Birmigham are you from?I go to school in Jacksonville but my boyfriend's family is in Pelham, so I'm down there quite a bit.

I was in Boston this weekend and when I was walking around Harvard's campus, I found two quatrafoils on one of their buildings. I was so excited!!!

The four gospels/compass aspect is interesting. Merriam-Webster online doesn't mention it, so it must be (almost) exclusively European in that regard.

Main Entry: qua·tre·foil
Pronunciation: 'ka-t&r-"foil, 'ka-tr&-
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English quaterfoil set of four leaves, from Middle French quatre + Middle English -foil (as in trefoil)
1 : a conventionalized representation of a flower with four petals or of a leaf with four leaflets
2 : a 4-lobed foliation in architecture
