Head of a corinthian column

Hi there folks! Here’s a recent exercise I made, the head of a corinthian column. I used SketchUp 2019 and some extensions like SUbD, VertexTools, QuadFaceTools.
By the way, I’ve uploaded the model to 3D Warehouse (click here)

Excellent. A nice complement to Tim Killen’s exploration of the Doric order, in the most recent “Design.Click.Build” blog on FineWoodworking.com. You can read it here:

Excellent modelling. But with volutes as large as that, isn’t this a Composite column instead of Corinthian? Image from Wikipedia:

Hi Anssi, thank you for your words! So kind!
I’m quite sure you’re right, but maybe this is one of those things that depends on who you ask.
Here’s a couple of examples of people calling corinthian to composite capitals.
