Portugal, Moorish ceiling

Thank you all for your interest and comments. I take photographs of brickwork and stone work to form backgrounds for my computer screen. This one's in the reception area as one enters the fortress at Silves. The fortress dates back to the 12th century. It's chillingly functional. One wall of the reception area has slits for archers to pick off anyone there. This ceiling would be the last thing an unwanted guest might see…
