46) Khoja-Akhmad Mausoleum, 14th century. Samarkand, Uzbekistan. (p. 47) 45 46 48 All the walls are covered in azure, turquoise, and gold mosaics. The edifices of the 14th and 15th century are dominated by polychrome decoration in glazed bricks and baked clay. The same process is used for the interior decorations and sometimes the polychrome paintings are enriched with gold. 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.

Geometrical ornaments (ghirikh) begin to appear as well as the first epigraphic decorations, like the one on the façade. Central Asian people are particularly fond of ornaments. Geometrical and vegetal designs, abstract or epigraphic, cover practically everything – from the portals of the palaces to snuff-boxes. During the 10th through the 12th centuries, geometrical ornaments acquired a theoretical foundation, due to an astonishing impetus given in the East by mathematics and particularly by applied geometry.

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). These architectural ensembles are a remarkable accomplishment of this epoch.
