Top with onions and remaining garlic. Surround the lamb with the artichokes, then cover the lamb and artichokes with the rest of the oil mixture. Close the tajine with the conical top, then cook on the stovetop at medium heat for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Uncover the tajine, garnish with olives, lemon juice, and slices of the preserved lemon.
