Herat mosque geometric design

Herat zeshoek patroon

Pattern from the Grand Mosque of Herat (Afghanistan)

Herat  is the largest city in western Afghanistan and has been designated a World Heritage Site by Unesco. Despite the devastation of the wars, many monumental buildings in the historic city centre are intact. This design comes from the Grand Mosque. All these geometric patterns are made - as in classical antiquity - with compasses and rulers I found this pattern in this book by Eric Boug.
