Description

inscriptions

al-Din Tâj al-Islâm 
Religion is the crown of Islam

The overall effect of the decorative elements of this panel, notably the inscription carved in deep relief between stylised split-palmettes, is visually comparable to the stylistic designs seen on the facades of certain Seljuk monuments in Konya dated to the second half of the thirteenth century, notably, the Iwan of the Ince Minareli Madrasa (Giovanni Curatola, L'Art Seljoukide et Ottoman, Paris, 2010, pp. 36-43) and (Gedad Hakki Eldem, Türk Mimari Eserleri, Works of Turkish Architecture, Istanbul, 1970, pp. 53-55).
