Reconquista
Attacking the moors
About this creation

The moc represents an attack of Christians on an Arab fortification in medieval Spain during the period of the “Reconquista”, meaning recapturing. It is a period that lasted for approx. 800 years, which began around 718. At the beginning it was just a rebellion against the Muslim governor, but it led to military confrontation and thereafter to wars, disputes, feuds and even to crusades. Bit by bit the moors lost their conquered land in Spain. The year 1212 marked a decisive turning point in history. In the Battle of las Navas de Tolosa King Alfons VII defeated the moors. Only 40 years later the Kalifat of Cordoba succumbed and the kingdom of Granada was the last Muslim territory in Spain. In the year 1492 Ferdinand and Isabella defeated the last bastion of the moors, the Emirat of Granada was no more.

The main part of the moc is the siege tower consisting of three levels with two different bridges. It is attacking the walls of a Muslim fortification. Let’s say it is King Alfons VII who is personally managing the attack.
