The Mocárabe is an ornamental design used in Islamic architecture that spread throughout the Islamic world in the 12th century.
The stalactite motif may be a symbolic representation of the cave where Mohammed received the Koran.
Examples of the Mocárabe arch can be found in the Sala de los Mocárabes at the Alhambra that began as a small fortress but was later re-developed by the Moors into a palace with the theme of 'paradise on earth.'
