Photograph of the Court of Lions in the Alhambra, Granada. In the foreground is a central fountain in the shape of a dodecagon carved from marble and supported on the backs of stone lions. In the background, fine pillars support porticos with stone filigree arches. A portico on the right features lancet arches with Muqarnas decorative work. A man, seated on the ground, leans against one of the pillars of the portico.
