Mary's Episcopal Cathedral
||This intricate inlay work is over
the high altar. The detail picture below shows how the geometric
pattern is created from triangles, squares and hexagons of different
coloured marble. This kind of design was undoubtably inspired
by Islamic geometic art.
||In the middle of the cathedral are
a series of panels with fine marble and stone inlay. These pictures
show several examples, and the next page has more, with close
ups of the patterns.
