Fragments from the Tomb of Buyanquli Khan

This is in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. At Bukhara in Uzbekistan, a magnificent domed mauseleum was erected over the grave of a Muslim descendant of Genghis Khan. In 1358 he was assassinated. The building was covered in these glazed tiles inside and out. I can only imagine what the original structure looked like completely covered in these stunning tiles. I silod them out and put the on black myself. They were hanging up on a while wall.

This tile fragment was originally part of a larger ornamental frieze. It decorated a magnificent domed mausoleum at Bukhara in Uzbekistan that was erected over the grave of Buyanquli Khan.
