How to use "Falcate" in context?

Falcate is a sharp curve in a line or surface. When drawn freehand, falcate lines often appear as if the artist tried to strong-arm the paper into a U-shape. In fact, falcate lines can be created by a variety of means, including the use of straight edges, a carving tool, or a razor.

Falcate lines may be found in nature, especially on the wings of insects, where they allow the creature to maneuver with greater speed and accuracy. Artists may use falcate lines to add drama and interest to their drawings or paintings.
