- I've made a redirect from Karyatid. In modern English, Caryatid is not "also spelled Karyatid", which is an affectation that needn't be inflicted on Wikipedia's readers. --Wetman 18:21, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
What is this sentence supposed to mean?
"In the arts of design, the draped figure supporting an acanthus-grown basket capital taking the form of a candlestick or a table-support is a familiar cliché of neoclassical decorative arts."--Filll (talk | wpc) 12:21, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
This whole section appears to need citation from: Kerenyi 1980 p 149
Most extant examples in architecture will be from the 19th century. This period is almost completely missing from coverage in the article at the moment and that is very misleading. For example, there is no mention of their use in France. And the form was adapted, so balconies might be supported by the top half of a figure, and so on. Figures, human and otherwise, fascinated the architects of the Art Nouveau and derivatives. This needs a fair bit of work. AJHingston (talk) 21:59, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
