Announcement   Bucranium (plural bucrania) is the Greek word for the skull of an ox. It is also an architectural term used to describe a common form of carved decoration in Classical architecture. A bas-relief or painted decor consisting of a series of ox-skulls draped or decorated with garlands of fruit or flowers was a Roman motif drawn from marble altars, which have survived in some number, a practice with a long history reaching back to the sophisticated Neolithic site of Çatalhöyük in eastern Anatolia, where cattle skulls were overlaid with white plaster.
