A garden complex with a pool in the centre has, in its four corners, depictions of the Buraq. The Buraq is the winged creature upon which the prophet Muhammad visited Heaven during his Night Journey from Mecca. Below the pool is a peaceful scene, but above it a tiger is killing a deer, and a man is aiming his rifle at an ibex.
