Paperblanks Taj Mahal Flowers, Shah Mini 3.75 x 5.5 Inch Lined and Unlined Journals
Paperblanks Pocket Taj Mahal Journals highlight floral details from the Indian architectural wonder. India's Taj Mahal was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan to house the tomb of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Considered of the seven wonders of the world monuments, the breath taking building is adorned both inside and out with these marbled flowers. Special in their specific colors and form, the decorations are incrustations of precious or semiprecious stones according to the technique known as “pietra dura,” a Florentine practice consisting of inlaid stones in a stone background.
Paperblanks Taj Mahal Flowers' covers reproduce photos taken Gerard Degeorge, the prolific photographer behind Paperblanks Intricate Inlays, Precious Stones and Gates of Cairo series.
In Islamic culture, flowers are often seen as symbols of Paradise; the Kingdom of God.
