In its simplest form this pattern is widespread all over Islam. In the Alhambra it occurs in variously elaborated forms: in the Mirador de Lindaraja, in which some of the khatems are replaced with curvilinear multifoil shapes, and in the Sala de los Reyes, in which some of the 4-fold stars are replaced by 8-pointed stars.
- The symmetry group of the tiling is *442 (p4m).
- All the internal angles of the constituent polygons are a multiple of 45°.
- Contains one regular four-pointed star polygon with vertex angle of 45°.
- Contains one regular 8-pointed star polygon with vertex angle of 90°.
- There are two non-regular reflective tiles.
- The tiling satisfies the interlace condition and has no finite interlace and one infinite interlace.
- The tiling is edge-to-edge.
- As drawn, contains about 197 polygons.
