Scrolling split

Here’s a nice little split ped I spotted earlier today above a door in Kemptown. The whole doorway is great (and nicely grand for a side entrance) but it’s the details that I like.

The scrolled pediment appeals, with it’s swan-neck ogee curves, fluted edges and rich depth, but also the herringboned bricks above and those very sexy little capitals topping off the pilasters.
