Double Doors from the Great Mosque of Cizre

Double Doors from the Great Mosque of Cizre

The double doors from the Great Mosque of Cizre are pictured here at the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Art in Istanbul. The doors consist of a timber frame and are plated with copper sheets attached to the wood by iron nails. Brass rods form an interlocking design of twelve-pointed stars. Between the spaces on the stars are plaques with openwork designs of scrolls. Motifs resembling four-leaf clovers can be seen in the border surrounding the door; they are fixed to the doors by domed studs.
