Tile Design By Tara Sartorius

Created by artist Tara Sartorius (Adjunct Professor of Art, Huntingdon College)

From the artist: "It is based on a drawing that I did by hand  and analyzed geometrically (I first used ruler and compass on paper, then photography and finally, digital painting) with the analysis instruction of a wonderful teacher named Samira Mian. It is my personal interpretation and not traditional at all. The design itself is based on architecture from the Gur E Amir Mausoleum in Samarkand, Uzbekistan.  (You can) (s)ee the little carved jaali high up on the back wall there."
