    How to use "Volute" in context?

    The volute, also known as a fluting, is a decorative element used in Classical and Renaissance architecture and sculpture. It is a curled design, typically made from a single piece of metal or wood, with small, evenly spaced ridges running the entire length of the shaft. The ridges are created by repeatedly folding the metal or wood over itself, and then cutting it along the fold lines. The folded design results in a series ofsmall bumps or raised areas on the shaft.

    The decoration can be used to add a naturalistic or stylized look to an object, or to provide a structural support.
