Coffered Ceiling

Ca. 1400. Polychromed, Carved. Room 052A

The principal beams are decorated with secular scenes, including dances, jousts or men fighting monsters, and with the coats-of-arms of Castile and León and those of the Luna and Rojas families. Other decoration includes sacred scenes (the Last Supper and the Last Judgement, for example). Between the transversal beams are panels with alternating castles and lions and elongated hexagonal panels, the majority painted with eight-petalled flowers.
