Dakar, the capital of Senegal, is currently hosting a photo exhibition dedicated to Iran’s Nature as well as the art and design employed in Iranian mosques. The exhibit titled ‘Naqsh-e Jahan’ is held as a part of the ninth edition of FESMIR, the International Artistic Festival of Dakar, slated for March 1-8.  The name of the exhibit is inspired by a famous square situated at the center of Isfahan city. Constructed between 1598 and 1629, Naqsh-e Jahan is now an important historical site and one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, reported. On display at the exhibit are 100 photos, all printed in 50 cm x 70 cm. Darioush Mohammadkhani, Mahnaz Shafiei, Sepideh Ahansazan, Siavash Eskandari, Fahimeh Akbari, Alaleh Rostami, Hirad Rahmani, Negar Tari and Hoda Molana are among the 26 photographers whose works are on show. The architecture of mosques in Iran varies from one region to another depending on culture, heritage and the resources available. Each mosque has different styles of tilework, unique color systems and symbolic patterns.
