Edirne december 2009 6014.jpg

The restored decoration of the dome in front of the mihrab is in imperial Ottoman style (16th – 17th century). The technique is called ‘kalem işi’ (= work of the pen/paintbrush). It is inspired on the geometric or stylised ornamentations used by Ottoman calligraphers to illuminate books.
