Français : en architecture, un cul-de-lampe est une console d'encorbellement constituée d’une pierre saillante servant à supporter une base de colonne, la retombée d'un arc, des nervures de voûte ou encore une statue dont la forme rappelle le dessous d'une lampe d'église.

English: In architecture, a cul-de-lampe is a corbel (or console) consisting of a projecting stone that supports: the base of a column, the spring of an arch, the ribs of a vault, or a statue.
  • Its shape recalls the underside of a sanctuary lamp, hence its name (which in French literally translates as "bottom of lamp").
