Bibi Khanum entrance gate - panel 1 - ks

The pattern on one of the panels on the pishtaq of the entrance gateos created by two overlapping squares. THis shape is rotated by 90° whereas the remaining space is filled by small squares. This patroon is used often and in variation with alternating texts. Somtimes the small square is filled alternatingly with Allah and akbar. Here a smaller square is drawn.
