color and lots of patterns as promised

please excuse the poor quality of photos but admire this incredible scene! this was the rooftop of the 2000 yr old kings home in tunis. i can't imagine the work to lay all of this and paint it all. i love the random selection of patterns. but, as a hole they work so well together. i think because of the color tying them in. tunis, carthage, and the coastal towns are just surrounded and covered with all shades of blue. i especially like the turquoise iron work. it's no easy task to pop amidst all of this pattern and color. truly beautiful. i feel an outside wall of my house being covered.....maybe a floor. i love this.
