The Beauty of Ornaments

Ornaments in the Oriental Garden. Photo: Ulla Hennig

Art in Oriental countries does not know the presentation of people, animals or even flowers. Instead of this there is a highly developed culture of decorating rooms with ornaments.

As you can see in this photo, the floor is wonderfully tiled, and there is a band of ornaments going round the walls. And have a look at the columns at the right hand side – how the architect or designer has played with the color Blue!

The more you look at this room, the more things you will discover. Enjoy!

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.

    This reminds me a lot of my trips to Istanbul. The palaces, the mosques, everything looks a bit like this. And the more you looked at each room, the more details you discovered.

    Ulla, this photo is brimming with intricate details. It truly is beautiful and I agree the more you look the more detail you find.
