In the great mosques of #istanbul , architect Mimar Sinan discovered that the eggs of “the bird who sticks his head in the ground” (an ostrich) could be used to ward off spiders and insects. He decorated the mosques with hundreds of eggs–many hung from the giant chandeliers that illuminate the houses of #worship. #architecture #perspective #travel #design #travel #potd #potn
