Now that you’ve made it from Cairo to Iznik, it’s time for the next activity on our quest. What does Iznik, Turkey have to show us? The answer is a tile lunette!
The tile lunette shown below is a half-moon-shaped mosaic made up of 16 tiles that is said to have most likely come from the palace of Piyale Pasha, an Ottoman admiral. The lunette features elements that create a saz, or “an enchanted forest.”
Create your own special lunette; it can look however you want it to look! Once you’ve created your own tile lunette, it’s time to leave Iznik, Turkey and head to Northern India!
