Faience Tiles | Shah Mosque (Imam Mosque) / Isfahan / Iran


On this panel in the Shah Mosque in Isfahan, Iran, ten-pointed stars (none of them shown completely) anchor the edges of a pattern in which four of the five girih shapes can be found. Both the stars and the scallop-edged hexagons are placed according to an underlying design of still more decagons and pentagons. The stars’ incompleteness reminds the viewer that the pattern actually extends into infinity.

Printed on 100% cotton rag / Archival fine art paper – 310gsm
