Look at those big eyes on that beast… it was lounging in the back of its ride. I guess Qatar has become so wealthy even the camels get a lift. Here it is, enjoying the breeze:
The Museum of Islamic Art in Doha had some gorgeous displays, some just jaw dropping like a fully restored suit of armor for both the Ottoman soldier and the horse.
I barely noticed. I was completely riveted by the architecture, probably the largest and subtly incorporated Islamic art, in the name of architecture.
The Met explains geometry in Islamic art better than I ever can. Using a play on geometric shapes and patterns yields some stunning architecture as the UAE and Qatar are beginning to demonstrate. The mix of old, new, and structure as a medium was so wonderfully exhibited here and I kept sprinting through the many galleries so that I could emerge out of the dark corners to explore a different perspective of the main hall.
