Photographer's Note

as you see , this "gate" belongs to a musque,aged atleast 200 years, near Kerman.
material : brick
structure : retaining walls & arcs
decorative details : Muqarnas ( or stalactites )
"Muqarnas"es used to fill out inside of a 3 dimentional carved surface , which in Islamic Architecture the architects made as the "ceiling"
of an element with "U" shape plan.

Muqarnas, is a caracteristic of Iran's Islamic Architecture, seen in most of thebeauriful ancient monuments of this type of Iran's architecture.
PS : yes, I agree with you about the lamp, but I liked this angle ( if I changed my posotion, it woldn't work) & maybe I wanted to show both "modernism" & custom, I don' know...
