In Christian architecture a transenna is an openwork screen of stone or metal enclosing a shrine. These transenna elements were found in Rome; the posts were said to have been excavated on the Coelian Hill and may have originally formed part of the transenna of the Church of San Saba. The Lombards were an ancient Germanic-speaking tribe that settled in Italy after 568. Their artistic tradition was originally centered on small objects of personal adornment like buckles and brooches. After occupying Italy, the Lombards found themselves in contact with large-scale sculpture of classical and early Christian origin that, by the end of the 700s, they had learned to adopt and imitate, as seen in this work

After the founding of the Dutch East India Company in 1602, the use of exotic, imported wood veneers in furniture became more prevalent. So too did the use of perspective and mathematical systems in laying out the veneers. The combination produced a style of decoration that spread across Europe and even to the young colonies in America.
