Abstract
Description
Many plants within the Abbey of the Three Fountains complex (Rome, Italy) have symbolic meanings, such as laurel and palm trees. Species of ivy (top) and acanthus (bottom) are pictured. Acanthus flourishes in warm climates. Acanthus leaves are a common motif in Roman art and often feature in the capitals of Corinthian columns.
