Star-shaped section of ALCAZAR. Tilework lattices. Inner wall of the Patio of Alcázar in Seville. The
borders, colours and scales are introduced by PUERTRA. Lattice of 8.
detail of the star-shaped section, showing colours, intersection covering, textures and line frames as found in
An extrapolation of the design on a door, in Konya Museum. Simple 10-lattice with distances
in golden proportion ( 1-1.618...)
A detail of the above
Stucco Lattice, from the Alcazaba (Moorish castle) in Málaga (Spain). As a picture on the
wall of the Museum. Three lattices: the first, which defines always the EG, a 4-lattice. In this case the EG is a
square, in the first quadrant. The second, a 8-lattice, with the same centre. The third, a 7-lattice, with its centre
in the centre of this square. Only one distance for this lattice.
A stucco lattice, covering the door vall of the Aksaray Sultan Hani, in Konya, (Turkey).
An analysis of this lattice using PUETRA
Decomposition of the lattice in four lattices: first, a 8-lattice to define the EG, an
equilateral rectangle; second, a 16-lattice with the same centre; third a 12-one, with its centre on the horizontal
axis extremum; four, a 10-lattice, with its centre on first quadrant the bisectrix, with one of its streets (pairs of
parallel frames around the centre) almost coincident with one of the 12-lattice. This almost coincidence has
been called enharmony or metabolê in former paragraphs.
