Description

218- Every visible surface in this slide is covered with decoration—an example of what some have termed Islamic art’s horror vaccui. The Alhambra’s walls also bear a lot of text, usually Quranic verses or poetry by one of the court poets. Most frequent is perhaps the Nasrid motto ‘La ghalib Ila Allah,’ there is no victor but God. For an account of the Court of the Lions, see B49. 210. For a general account of the Alhambra, see slide B49.185. - SK
