Interesting to see the Moorish influence of Andalusian art in this monument (see the Alahmbra from Granada in Spain)... I'm particularly intigued by the arabian-language-like characters inhere! Does it mean something or is it only a copy of the letterstyle without meaning?...

Default To pirulesco: Thanks for your comments

The moorish influence was strong no only in AndalucŪa, but in all Spain. Remember that Muslims were present for 700 years in the iberic peninsula.
Regarding your question, I think its a copy of the beautiful arabic letterstyle, but without any meaning in this case. Argentina was far from the arabic influence. In any case, I think this work is very nice, with beautiful textures.
Spanish arts were very poor, but, after the arabic invasion, many cities grew and the arab culture feed and improved the Iberic peninsula cultural roots. Later the Spanish expelled the Arabs (after long dynastic wars in the XIV century) and that is the roots of the Spanish kingdom.
Argentina (and Latin America) also has these roots.

Keep sharing your photos!
