This is a Islamic background theme page, the design is based on the interior view of an Islamic mosque's dome. I suggest using a deep plum colored text as shown.
This lighter plum is nice also, but I think using it just for visited links would be enough. If you use this color too much, the page becomes less readable.
Above you see a blank title graphic for you to insert a web page title on. If you don't have a graphic program capable of doing that, e-mail me and I will do it for you as time allows. Below you will find the graphic dividers and bullets designed for this page. The buttons designed for this page also are linked for this site so that you can navigate through it.
The dome of a mosque is circular. The circle, and its centre, are the point at which all Islamic patterns begin and is an apt symbol of a religion that emphasizes one God, symbolizing also, the role of Mecca, the center of Islam, toward which all Moslems face in prayer. The circle has always been regarded as a symbol of eternity, without being and without end, and is not only the perfect expression of justice-equality in all directions in a finite domain--but also the most beautiful parent of all polygons, both containing and underlying them.
The Ottomans introduced central dome mosques in the fifteenth century and have a large dome centered over the prayer hall. In addition to having one large dome at the center, a common feature are smaller domes that exist off-center over the prayer hall or throughout the rest of the mosque, where prayer is not performed. This style was heavily influenced by the Byzantine religious architecture with its use of large central domes.
Iwan mosques are most notable for their domed chambers and iwans, which are vaulted spaces open out on one end. In iwan mosques, one or more iwans face a central courtyard that serves as the prayer hall. The style represents a borrowing from pre-Islamic Iranian architecture and has been used almost exclusively for mosques in Iran.
