Mudéjar’s art on the ceiling of the entrance hall
The image shows a beautifully carved wooden ceiling of the vestibule, a hall situated at the entrance to the Pedro I Palace, which is part of the Real Alcázar of Seville in Spain.
This beautiful piece of work in wood is an excellent example of Mudéjar art, a style of decoration originated in Moorish Spain and is a fusion of Islamic and Christian art.
As you can see, enclosed within the central rectangle of the wooden panel is exquisitely decorated artwork containing gold inlaid shapes (medallions and polygons), with beautiful geometrical patterns interlaced around them.
The Pedro I Palace itself is known as the Mudéjar Palace because the original palace was built and decorated with the help of Mudéjar artisans from Granada who were involved in building the Alhambra palaces.
Check the ceiling of a corridor of Patio de las Doncellas to view another example of Mudéjar art in Real Alcázar.
