This picture book captures the spirit of the original Kalila and Dimna (aka Bidpai Fables), translated from Arabic into Spanish (1251) by
Alfonso X the Wise. These fables provide to princes useful moral lessons about society and politics. Our version keeps the narrative structure of Russian dolls, and is illustrated combining medieval Persian miniatures with ornaments from Mozarabic architecture.
