MyWorld: Angawi Tiled Mosaic Pool

DSCF1843 2 copy
At first glance, this may appear to be a beautiful blue Persian carpet. In actuality, it is a tiled mosaic at the bottom of the indoor pool in the Angawi House of Jeddah, which is a tribute to the beauty of Islamic architecture. You can also see the reflections of the floors above the pool in the surface of the water. The mosaic was created with thousands of tiny tiles in shades of blues, greens, and yellows, laid out in intricate designs. Please see yesterday’s post for more information about Angawi House and links to more photos.
