This magnificent ceiling is located at the Charbagh Theological School in Isfahan, Iran. Once one of the largest cities in the world, Isfahan is still famous for its architecture, which includes mosques, covered bridges, palaces, and boulevards. Naghsh-e Jahan Square in Isfahan is even a World Heritage Site according to UNESCO.

Though Iran may not be the first place that comes to mind when thinking of famous people, many artists, actors, painters, and writers and poets have come from Isfahan. Also known as the Shah school, Charbagh is a 16th to 17th century cultural complex that produced more than a few of these well-known figures.
