|Eclipsed Suns - Multiple images of an eclipsed sun projected onto exquisitely decorated tiles inside Sheikh Lutfalla Mosque, Esfahan, Iran. Images by
Mohamad Soltanolkotabi (site).
Panes of windows (below) in the drum of the single-shell dome act as giant pinholes to form the images.
The mosque dates to 1617 and is among the finest expressions of Safavid (1501-1760) Iranian architecture.
