Above: Omid Hamooni has generously sent along some images from the Shahriyar Mosque in Tehran, a public memorial and a place for shared worship for Shiite Muslims all over the world. Omid points out that the fascinating crafts featured here, calligraphy, carving, and intricate metal work, have a four-hundred year old history.

The Thulth style of calligraphy is heavily employed and Omid points out that the rooster can be interpreted as a call to prayer. Invaluable insight, mamnoon am, Omid!
