Again we suggest a comparison:

now between the geometric framework of the iron gate, with the image we included in our preceding post: a mosaic of Ravenna - 6th century, representing Last Supper.

The towel (or the table...?) has almost the same pattern we saw recently in the chalices-custodies of MNAA*; or also in the beautiful window of Alpedrinha**.

In all these situations we think the use of such ornament is a direct outcome of its initial meaning: suggesting harmony and the Divine.
