Mezquita Córdoba


Originally uploaded by Roger.Esteban


The Mezquita of Cordoba leads into a forest of arches, double arches of ochre and white painted stone resting on jasper and marble pillars. This is a palm forest of infinite invitation and limitless paths through the light of the heart. The arched entrance promises an oasis that offers shelter from the glare of the noon sun, or from the sudden downfall of fierce rain. It is a refuge of prayer once frequented by saints and philosophers, mystics and craftsmen.
