More on the Moors
I love this detail from the Moorish palace. The white and black smooth pebbles were all inlaid to make this design with a drain in the middle and the hedgework all very precisely cut around it. Every detail is beautiful. And then they use water so well and interestingly. A fountain on one level, goes down into another fountain and sort of a trough and then it reappears as a little channel of water going through the center of the walkway.
