Mosque Detail

Mosque Detail

Great design harmonizes beauty of the whole with beauty in the detail. There is such beauty in the design of this Mosque that one is tempted to be trapped in awe and miss the detail beauty in the symmetry of this entrance way, miss the detail in the color variations of the vertically placed building blocks, miss the intricacy of the metal work adorning the doors, and miss the subtleties that only a true artisan will see in the shape of the hammer marks the craftsman utilized when shaping the metal.
