The Arches of Alhambra

    While my trip to Granada and the Alhambra will get more extensive coverage
    in upcoming posts I wanted to dedicate this one to the often overlooked arches
    of the Alhambra (compared to the ceilings, which are of course spectacular
    and will have their time in the spotlight later).

    But for now let's all take a moment to revel in the sheer splendor of Arabic,
    hand-painted, hyper-patterned, muqarna fabulousness.

    We really don't make them like we used to, do we?

    P.S. Happy Summer Solstice
