The Alcazar triptych marks the starting point of this body of work. These analyses were conducted on-site at the Royal Alcazar of Seville, whilst living in Seville, Spain. Here, we see three of the most iconic palatial patterns grow from their initial “mother circle” all the way to the finished ceramic wall mosaics (known in Andalucia as alicatados, a Spanish-Arabic term referring to the process of cutting each tile shape from larger, glazed ceramic tiles).
