A sentimental reformer in architecture, he began at the cornice, not at the foundation.
Between the pediment and the cornice a thick corded moulding is carried round the main building.
Above these ties are the cornice brackets and beams, corresponding in general design to the cornice of the walls, and the intermediate space is filled with open carvings of dragons or other characteristic designs.
Facing the main entrance is a small open shrine, consisting of a cornice and dome upheld by four pillars.
The chief type of agricultural society is the cornice agricole, an association for the discussion of agricultural problems and the organization of provincial shows.
