Inside the dome of the Nasir-al-Mulk Mosque in Shariz, Iran we experience an exquisite piece of rosace art as today’s MotD. How can I even begin to express in mere words what looking at this ceiling does for me. I’m in awe of all of it: the colors, the design, the patterns. I really love the repeated heart shapes through the piece.
BTW…this remarkable ceiling is repeated multiple times within the mosque. Incredible! (said with a French accent)
From an article about this Mosque, MuslimHeritage.com states:
Built in late 19th century, not very new and not very old, it is a celebration of both classic and modern times embedded in Islamic heritage. Speaking of this heritage, it has roots in Islamic art, architecture, tile making, geometry, patterns and other arts that flourished in the Golden Age of Islam.
I would love to have the opportunity to experience this amazing mosque in person…to fully take in all its beauty, colors and design…and to fully appreciate the artisanship and essence of this stunning place.
Today’s MotD begs the question…would you rather have a plain white walls or something very much alive an bursting with colors? I know what I want…now I just have to convince the hubby. 🙂
