Natanz Minaret

Natanz is an old city in Isfahan state/Iran. Main Architecture of the city is concentrated in a complex that contains Jame Mosque, Sheykh Abde Samad Shrine and the Minaret. All belong to 1100 AC.
The real Natanz Minaret was an almost ruined structure until 70s. It’s a huge sign of Iranian brickwork tradition. I had a rare and interesting photo of the ruined time for the appreciating Scorpion Publishing, so I started to make the entire Minaret but the head part gave me a good shot and details of the bricks was really interesting, therefore I just focused on head and left the other parts.
