Acanthus

I read something recently that seemed somewhat profound about the use of the Acanthus leaf in ornamental design. The acanthus motif is always enduring, because it is independent of circumstances. Now this statement could run you in circles for hours, but I think what is important about this statement is that if you start to pay attention to all the ornamental motifs around you, you will realize for some reason or another, one cannot dispute this. One might say, there is much that is independent of circumstances, but is there? What is so enduring about the Acanthus?
