Abderraman, Omeya Prince

Illustration about Abderraman, Omeya Prince and his horse for a book about historical figures.
Like the illustration of Marco Valerio Hispánico, this illustration of Abderramán, is also part of the book (still in the making and in the campaign of patronage) that brings together different historical figures from the Iberian Peninsula, which are being interpreted by different illustrators.

Abderramán was, in short, the first independent emir of Córdoba and the builder of the mosque of Córdoba (year 785), which today is an architectural symbol (precious and monumental) of Muslim Spain.
