Sheikh Lotfullah Mosque interior detail

Isfahan

Sixteen latticed window screens, turquoise cable tile outlining the four arches, cobalt-blue tile on which extravagantly-wrought white Thulth calligraphy designed by Alireza Abbasi, the Shah’s court calligrapher, races up and down the inner arches and along the base of the drum, in a whole of perfect symmetry........the mosque is divinely inspired.
