Arabesque \Ar`a*besque"\, n. [F. arabesque, fr. It. arabesco,
fr. Arabo Arab.]
A style of ornamentation either painted, inlaid, or carved in
low relief. It consists of a pattern in which plants, fruits,
foliage, etc., as well as figures of men and animals, real or
imaginary, are fantastically interlaced or put together.
Note: It was employed in Roman imperial ornamentation, and
appeared, without the animal figures, in Moorish and
Arabic decorative art. (See Moresque.) The arabesques
of the Renaissance were founded on Greco-Roman work.
