Tiles

A medium sized Kashan star tile, with carefully laid-out cobalt borders between which is an inscription. The bird, which could also be an ibis, is caught in twisting motion, and is surrounded by plants, also in reserve and with a “textured” ground which characterizes the mature Kashan Style.
