Anyone familiar with this window trim?

It is a good example of when people apply decorative building elements without any consideration of how the faux parts/materials would be used if they were the real thing. One of the most common examples of this is when I see faux stone or bricks installed on cantilevers. It looks ridiculous to me.

We pulled the brick facade off our place while doing termite damage removal. Had to get into the wall below the level of the bricks, which came to just under the window. When we finally got enough courses removed, we discovered that the jutting out room was a cantilever arrangement. At least the original installation hid the fact.
