Mosaic tile working is one of the gorgeous types of art in Iran. The art includes designing the patterns on the paper and coloring it by the artist at first, then shaving tile pieces according to their color and patterns , after that putting the different pieces together, forming the desired pattern, gluing them together and eventually installing the tile on surface you like. It is a masterful and time-consuming art and making a small square-shaped tile may take about a month so constructing a mosque using mosaic tile work could take long years. Jame mosque of Yazd whose summer Shabistan took more than 100 years to be built is the greatest example of mosaic tile working you can visit in your travel to Iran.
