A figure-eight shaped curve whose equation in polar coordinates is ρ2=a2 cos 2θ

In algebraic geometry a lemniscate may refer to any of several figure eight shaped curves. The word comes from the Latin “lēmniscātus” meaning “decorated with ribbons.”

In lazure painting it is the ‘brushing out’ technique of the translucent glazes.
