It's difficult to see in this photo, but the statue at the bottom window shows Jesus carrying his cross, the one above him is a statue of Jesus with his right arm bent at the elbow and his hand in a blessing with his index and next finger in a kind of peace sign. The third window from the bottom could be Jesus again in heaven or it could be a representation of God with a staff that looks like a tree. The top window seems to be the angel Gabriel with wings extended and a lance in his hand.
Next to the Koutobia, the tomb of Lalla Zohra sits with its quiet, whitewashed symmetry. Lalla Zohra was born to a freed slave and religious leader. A woman by day, she flew throughout the city at night as a dove and thus knew all the the secrets of the Marrakechis.
