Purpose Decorative


Fragments (frammenti), like their name suggests, are small broken pieces of other artwork, and are a sub-set of material culture. When larger carvings were destroyed, the remains were often discarded. However, on occasion, remaining fragments were spared and often set into a wall. The fragment is not an intentional piece of artwork; no one makes fragments. Instead, they are the leftovers from grander objects that no longer exist. While they may have once been part of an important artistic sculpture, they are no longer of much significance.

An architectural fragment, most likely left over from a decorated window arch
