Throughout Iran, vibrantly hued, richly detailed geometric patterns dazzle the eye and boggle the mind. Their intricacy and symmetry is truly astounding – so much so that it’s almost hard to believe that these could be the works of human beings.
In fact, if the patterns seem more divinely inspired than man-made, then that’s very fitting. And the sense of awe that comes while looking at them, too, is highly appropriate.
That’s because these stunning, abstract designs span across mosque interiors in the Middle Eastern country. Not least because of eye-catching features such as these, mosques are some of the most ornate and beautiful buildings in Iran – and possibly the world.
