Moorish arch



A very pretty arch much favoured east of Suez. Although possessing no particular structural virtue it is pleasing to the onlooker. The bridgewatcher is unlikely to see such arches other than in oriental buildings, to bridge over door and window openings. Sometimes the façade of a moorosh arch may be superimposed upon a semi-circular arch.
