"She lives the poetry she cannot write"
Oscar Wilde (via c-ovet)
Carved door panel, Timurid period, late 15th century
Present-day Uzbekistan, Samarqand
“This door is said to have been found in a secular building in Khokand, in present-day Uzbekistan. The intricate carvings of interlaced vine scrolls seen here may be compared to similar relief decoration in stone carvings of the fifteenth century and to contemporary manuscript illuminations. The establishment of royal workshops throughout Iran during the fifteenth century fueled a unity of design across media, resulting in the emergence of common regional design vocabularies.”
