Monumental Collection

Monumental collection is inspired by original, rich and varied art that integrated geometry in the construction of complex patterns that appear on the architectural ornaments.

The set is inspired by one of the ornaments found in the Mausoleum of Momine Khatun (or Mu'mine Khatun) located in Nakhchivan City, the capital of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic in Azerbaijan.

It was commissioned by Atabeg Muhammad Jahan Pahlavan (1175-1186), in honor of his first wife, Momine Khatun, and completed in 1186-1187, as indicated on the Kufic-style inscriptive plaque above the entrance.
