Description

A close-up image of the intricate decoration of the front portal of the İnce Minareli Medrese. This image also exhibits what is termed as the "horror vacui" of Islamic architects, seen clearly in the almost complete absence of undecorated spaces in this portal. (For detailed look at this portal, see B42.018; for detailed account of the İnce Minareli Medrese, see B42.014.) -MA
