Mudéjar 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 of the Pedro I Palace, which is part of the Real Alcazar of Seville, Spain.

It is an excellent example of Mudéjar art, a style of decoration originated in Moorish Spain and is a fusion of Islamic and Christian art. The Pedro I Palace itself is known as the Mudéjar Palace because the initial palace was built and decorated with the help of Mudéjar artisans from Granada who were involved in building the Alhambra palaces.
