This is one of two ‘Persian’ pieces based on a C14 Muzaffarid mosaic tile pattern from the (Friday) Jameh Mosque in Yazd (see also Artwork 032). Credit to Paul Marchant for the analysis and layout (2015). This piece replicates the original in situ mosaic panel in that the lines are not thickened or woven. The pattern is tessellated and the palette - differing shades of blue, ochre, gold and white - follows the original in situ mosaic pattern.
