ARCHITECTURAL EPIGRAPHY OF UZBEKISTAN QASHQADARYO SHAHRISABZ

Description

The volume is dedicated to inscriptions on the architectural monuments of Shakhrisabz dated to the Oriental Renaissance period, including the culture of Amir Temur and the Temurids. Among the monuments included in the album are the Aksaray Palace, Dar us-Sadat and Dar ut-Tilavat architectural complexes, Hazrati Malik Azhdar and Abdushukur Agalik mosques. Most of the inscriptions on the monuments had been lost and were restored by a group of specialists based on old photographs, archival notes by theologians and scholars of the past, the traces of lost letters remaining on ganch-based mosaic panels. The research made it possible to read almost all inscriptions on monuments, identify for the first time the names of seven masters, as well as decipher the names of the authors of the texts (poets, theologians). In particular, a number of laconic political maxims and well-wishes were read for the first time on Aksaray: "Justice is the foundation of a state and the slogan of rulers", "Be as astute as Solomon in your kingdom, and like Noah in (the duration of) life."
