About This Image
Architectural detail of an awesomely carved and decorated staircase. It defines the term "horror vacuii," a definition usually applied to Arab aesthetics in which the entire surface of an object is expertly covered with carvings, painting, calligraphy, and decorative flourishes. Numbered 55 in white in negative. Location unknown.
