The brackets used for their strength are generally made out of wood, stone or even metal. They can support a variety of things, including walls, eaves, the springs of an arch, beams or even a shelf.
However, they are often used for decoration. Being created through moulding or casting allows the finer details of the designs to shine through. Since they are often made into the shapes of scrolls or other objects, these details are incredibly important to portray them correctly. These designs are particularly popular when using historical styles of architecture.
