Example text

Ornamental sculpture on wood or stone also became more important during this epoch. There were also new tendencies in the ornamentation; plant motifs predominate rather than geometrical ones. They were composed of coloured bricks on vast portions of walls or around the minaret towers. The new style also affected the ornamental inscriptions. Sentences with geometrical designs are inscribed on the outside surface of the edifices. Friezes and borders are also used with inscriptions in ligatural lettering (souls).

Following the narrow alleys, new combinations of architectural volumes can be discovered with their wall surfaces, the vertical lines of the minarets topped with cupolas. In the decoration of the most sumptuous edifices of Khiva, small tiles of blue and white majolica enhanced with black and white vegetal patterns, largely prevailed. Incidentally in the architectural forms, the palace decorations and the edifices dedicated to the cult, numerous motifs were borrowed from popular architecture (courtyards and iwans with columns) and from the applied arts (columns and carved doors, painted walls and ceilings, abstract and floral ornaments prevailed).

Many of them are striking because of the grandiose character of their forms, the precise projection of architectural volumes such as the Registan at Samarkand, largely rebuilt in the 17th century. Others, such as Shah-i-Zinda are picturesque compositions with groups of little mausoleums and mosques erected in remembrance of a venerated person, along a narrow lane on a hillside in place of the old Aphrasiab. This ensemble, from the spectator’s point of view, is seen as a new combination of volumes sometimes unexpected.
