Description

The mihrab of the Sahip 'Ata Külliyesi. The image is in black and white and thus does not reflect the true splendor of the exquisite decoration of the mihrab with its muqarnas niche. The decoration consists of a combination of arabesque and geometric patterns, and, like in many other instances of Selcuk decoration, varying light and dark hues of blue across the tile surface. It is suggested that viewers visit the section on the Sahip 'Ata Külliyesi on the website http://archnet.org and see the photograph of this same mihrab there, where the beauty of this style of decoration is much better captured. -MA
