SkyWatch: Dome and Tilework

This magnificent colorful illustration of Eastern art shows the beautiful elaborate design of a portico at the consulate of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Jeddah. This theme is carried throughout the exterior of the grounds and it is stunning. There are several domes like this on the property. I think it is one of the more beautiful embassies in the area.

    Hi Susie,
    I haven’t been to all the blogs I like to visit lately, because there are too many. I just enjoyed reading the posts to the bottom of this page. I love the camel sculpture, the spices, your Skywatches, and especially the clove box wedding favor. Thanks for sharing your world with us!

    I decided not to subscribe to your follow up comments, since I am so behind, and you don’t have many yet, so there may be a lot coming, but you can come over to my A Corner Garden blog if you’d like to say hi.
