Continuing from the last post, Photo 26 was also taken in the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar.
As a westerner you wonder what is Islamic art.
After you visit this museum and become aware of your surroundings you find the geometry used in the patterns displayed on doors, walls, ceilings, etc. make up part of the art in the region.
Combined with the calligraphy of Arabic writing you find it is a simple but powerful form of art that has one purpose – to worship Allah.
I have really come to respect and appreciate the Islamic art and glad my wife and I took the time to visit the museum on a few occasions while living in Doha.
I really like this photo. I hope you like it too.
