by Shiro Takahashi@

Muqarnas is a three-dimentional decoration of Islam architecture. The singular beauty of the Muqarnas has been reported by travellers throughout history. Their descriptions, however, are little more than brief introductions, and many details remain unclear. The author has created exact drawings of many Muqarnas, classifying them into types in an attempt to clarify the formative styles of Muqarnas. ¨detail
