|Survey researching name of Imam Ali (AS) in Islamic Iranian architecture published||
“The Name of Ali (AS) in Islamic Iranian Architecture” has been published by Arma, a publishing company in Isfahan, the Research Center for Culture, Art and Relations, which sponsored the study project, announced on Friday.
The study has been carried out by a team of 55 experts led by Gholamhossein Memarian.
“The appearance of the name on the bodies, covers, and the arabesques of structures reflects the belief the people of this great land have had in this great man of history,” Memarian wrote in the preface to book.
The designs have been created with bricks, tiles, plaster, colors, stones, earthenware, and wood or mixtures of these materials.
“Even when Shiism had not been declared the official religion of Iran, this sacred name adorned numerous buildings in this land,” he added.
Memarian said that the book is comprehensive and added, “By travelling to the great Khorasan, Samarkand, Bukhara, and some cities in Afghanistan including Herat, we can add more examples to the designs the book contains.”
