Greek Key Pattern

Greek key, also known as meander pattern and Greek fret, is a decorative border constructed from a continuous line, shaped into a repeated motif. This pattern is common in decorative elements of Greek and Roman art. In ancient Greece, this motif appeared in many architectural friezes and in the banding on Greek pottery.  Greek key pattern (a modern designation of the design) has made a resurgence in all types of design and since it happens to be a favorite of mine, I wanted to share some inspirational uses of this classic motif.
