Selimiye Mimbar

by : Serap Ekizler Sönmez


A hand-crafted geometric pattern found in the mimbar of Selimiye mosque in Turkey. Selimiye mosque is considered one of Mimar Sinan's masterpieces

Serap Ekizler Sönmez is a world renowned scholar, author and artist of Islamic geometric patterns, shares her admiration for Mimar Sinan in these two pieces of his masterpieces; a sketch of the Suleymaniye Mosque in Istanbul and a geometric analysis of the minbar at Selimiye mosque in Edirne. In studying the Islamic arts at their zenith, a symbiotic relationship of art and science, she believes we can understand why the Islamic civilizations which these arts were born in flourished, how we lost it and thus understanding how we can regain such heights once more. Mimar Sinan is one of the most internationally recognized names in architecture and is the pivotal scholar to study in this endeavor.
