The repeated motif of this graphic is taken from the large, complex ceramic mosaic dados in the central, throne alcove in the north wall of the Salon de Comares. This dado includes a number of different 12-fold motifs (see Alhambra, Salon de Comares, north wall dado (part)), which are used individually to form repeating patterns in a number these graphics.
