Catalogue Note

"The striking green colour announces that the niche is in the old beliefs, a gate to a cosmic level, here possibly the Golden Door of the ecliptic where the moon with its symbolic dark blue colour melts with the yellow colour of the stars. Consequently the stepped outline of the mihrab could be read as a stairway to the heavens." EH
