The Hassan Tower in Rabat (1199) The Hassan Tower in Rabat is simple. It was unfortunately denied its crown, which was supposed to be a series of blind arcades surmounted by a row of serrated melons on top of which arose a small dome-carrying lantern on a platform, a regular feature in Maghrebian minarets. [See p. 26] The small marble columns that supported the three arcades of advanced beam filling have disappeared. An examination of the casing of the large blind window of the second floor and the three serrated arcades below reveals that these forms are enhanced by a kind of border which, unlike the relief moulding in 14th-century Cairo monuments, is an area bounded by a deep line of engraving.

Pleasure palaces built by his predecessors. qxp 3/20/2009 8:16 AM Page 51 C – Iran and the Persian School T he art of the early caliphs, whose splendour has been revealed only by historians, and which spread to the south and the west, was equally crucial to the development of Persian art, given that Persia had initially been a province of the vast empire of the caliphs.

It would be very difficult to draw any kind of analogy between them, and to attribute all of them to a so-called Seljuq style, since Ottoman art is different from that of Persia, from a strictly architectural point of view. These foreign dynasties sometimes fairly contributed to modifying local styles by encouraging more frequent interactions between the peoples they united under their rule; by introducing the taste of enamelled coatings, as did the Seljuqs of Anatolia; by seeking to find, in the monuments that they were erecting in Edirne, some of the aspects of this luxurious decoration that they had admired in Persia; or by creating substantial colonies of Chinese ceramists, whose influence is clearly established by some details of faience coating used as ornamentation and tonality for coloured enamels.
