What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Sacred Geometry


Bayt Al Fann is a website that describes itself as “A house for everyone, exploring art & culture inspired by Islamic tradition.” Their feed is full of intricate, geometric art with an Islamic theme, and it’s all mind-blowingly satisfying. They came to my attention this year during Ramadan when the website started a Twitter thread featuring the mind-blowingly complex and gorgeously-decorated ceilings from mosques around the world. I have never seen such complicated art. The amount of talent involved in designing these sacred spaces is staggering, and I can’t begin to comprehend the dedication and skill that must have been involved in making them a reality.

You can see all of the amazing Islamic art on the Bayt Al Fann website and on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

  2. Looking at all of them today, left me breathless. Especially with domes, I have never been able to understand how they are created. Hal
