En el nombre del Padre, y del Hijo, y del Espíritu Santo

On holiday in Andalusia one year I had a debate about Catholic art versus Islamic art. While I love a good pattern as much as the next girl, I’m team Catholic all the way. Blood, tears, bits of mouldy bone, severed heads, dead Popes on public display – what’s not to like? Random trivia: Islamic art is intricately geometric, but artists make tiny deliberate mistakes, as only Allah is considered perfect and to attempt perfection in anything else is blasphemy. Can’t remember who told me that.
