Footnotes

  • Corbels carved in a similar style from 13th-14th century Toledo can be found in the collection of the Hispanic Society of America, New York (See H. Ecker, Caliphs and Kings. The Art and Influence of Islamic Spain, Washington, 2004, pp. 54-65). Features of this style of carving, typical of the 13th-14th century in the Spain, include the central line through the motifs and the use of multiple angles which give the pieces great depth and beauty in different lights.
