Daniel in the lions’ den, Church of San Pedro de la Nave, Zamora Spain.
The traditional interpretation is that the church foundation goes back to the reign of Egica in the seventh century, having been built between 680 and before the Muslim conquest of Hispania in 711; San Pedro de la Nave would thus be one of the last works of Visigothic architecture. However, the most recent archaeological studies have proven it to be not Visigothic, but Mozarabic (so, 9th century or 10th century in date).
Mozarabic or Vizigothic, it’s still Pre-Romanesque and very, very, cool.

Not a chance of it being post-conquest. Allah does not allow art that shows people or animals.
