Foliage

Motifs of foliage appear frequently in ancient artwork, and are particularly common in ceramic decoration from Greek and Chinese civilisations, as well as in sculptural frieze. Perhaps especially in the context of Greek art, such use of foliage (particularly prevalent in Dionysian scenes) often seems intended to evoke ideas of fertility and prosperity. Additionally, the inclusion of this image of the natural world in artwork on manmade and often domestic items can be seen to represent a crucial meeting point between human civilisation and nature.
