"In Blue Mosque----Floral Patterned Tiles" Blue Mosque - Sultan Ahmed Mosque Tip by pabertra

  Floral Patterned Tiles
by pabertra
 
 

These floral patterned tiles are really fascinating, since the Muslim relgion does not typically incorporate anything that resembles plant or animal life in their buildings. Thus we normally see intricate geometric designs, but the Ottomans traditionally used floral like patterns as evidenced here by these tiles.
