Description

A closer view of the southwest iwan. The different segments of the iwan have been adorned by an immensely rich combination of Arabic calligraphy in thuluth script and Arabesque patterns. In addition to the brilliant surface decoration of the iwan, it also boasts a superb muqarnas construction that consists of giant basic elements and niches. (For more detail on this iwan, see B02.018.) -MA
