Original wood engraving by Paul Nash (1928). From an edition of 45. This is one of the trial proofs taken from the original block in the V & A by Ian Mortimer for Garton and Cooke in 1985.

‘It is tempting to suggest that this design was conceived as part of the Abd-er-Rhaman in Paradise suite. Although no precise textual equivalent can be found, the text is full of descriptions of celestial gardens which could have inspired Nash’s design. Its horizontal format is at variance with the three published large illustrations, but it is comparable in size. The rather floridcutting is also in keeping with this group of engravings, teh treatment of the waterfall in Paradise is similar to the cutting used here.’
