The mosaic on the north wall of the cathedral of Monreale depicts the killing of Abel by Cain. T The mosaics are based on the Byzantian style and created in about 1218 by Moorish artists, as part of a sequence of images that begin with the creation myth, tempation and expulsion from Eden, and the events leading to the killing of Abel.
