3.- Samarkand, Sher Dor madrasah


Sher Dor madrasah - on the right (1619-1635) "keeping the lions" has ribbed cupola. The lions - painted on the main portal considered to be the Persian emblem - are stripped, which makes them look like tigers. Lions are chasing the baby deer and the sun is enjoying the scenery of hunting. Actually this decoration is breaking the Islamic rule to depict no alive being.
