A triangular molding under a roof or above a doorway is called a pediment. This is a good example of a broken pediment, so named because the beam does not go all the way across the top of the door. To see an example of an unbroken pediment, see the Colonial Style door. Photographer: Kathrine of Copenhagen Daily Photo. Taken in June 2006. This doorway is in Copenhagen, Denmark.
