Patterns in Courtyard of the Lions

These are examples of the many patterns that you can find in the Alhambra. These come from the Patio de los Leones. (Courtyard of the Lions) Nasrid plasterwork covers almost every single surface of walls, arches, vaults and ceilings. This geometric ornamentation is a visual example of the affinity between Islam and mathematics. The lower parts of most walls are covered with mosaic tiles, while the upper sections are decorated with stucco.
