Description

The original, one of a kind artwork is a part of the World heritage architecture Series and focuses on the uniqueness of the ornaments, geometry & symmetry of ancient architecture. The Registan was a public square in the heart of the ancient city of Samarkand of the Timurid Empire (Uzbekistan). The name Rēgistan means "sandy place" or "desert" in Pesian. It is framed by three madrasahs (Islamic schools) of distinctive Islamic architecture. One of them is Tilya-Kori Madrasah - was not only a residential college for students, but also played the role of grand masjid (mosque). It has a two-storied main facade and a vast courtyard fringed by dormitory cells, with four galleries along the axes. The entire building is lavishly decorated with various herbal ornaments and linear patterns. The artwork is not framed but the mat will be included.
