20+ Mesmerizing Mosque Ceilings That Highlight The Wonders Of Islamic Architecture

Mosques throughout the Muslim world have some of the most intricate and exquisite architecture ever created by mankind. There’s too much amazing architecture in them to cover in just one post, so we decided to focus simply on mosque’s ceilings – something the faithful might see when they look up to the heavens.

These images show just how heavily mathematics and geometry featured into Islamic architecture in the Arab world and elsewhere. The repeating perfect spirals and geometric forms are reminiscent of the intricate mandalas found in Buddhist art as well.

Iran is known for its extraordinary collection of stunning mosques, which we wrote about here, but there are beautiful mosques elsewhere as well. We’d love to see your photos of amazing mosque ceilings submitted below and invite you to vote for your favorites!

Pinhole Selfies

A selfie is probably the most popular type of photography of modern times. These days everyone has a camera in their pocket and a quick snapshot of oneself is made each day in uncountable amounts. The photographic technology we have today makes it very easy for us to snap an image of ourselves and share it with the world by just pressing a button. Things were not as easy and fast at the very beginning, when a camera obscura was used to take first photos ever.

Ignas Kutavicius is a photo artist that experiments with making various pinhole cameras and has built a head mounted pinhole selfie camera. By mixing modern culture with the oldest photographic technology the result is a fun reflection of what selfies could of looked like at the beginning of the history of photography.
