Detail from north portal of mosque. Great Mosque and Hospital of Divrigi (Divriği Ulu Camii ve Daruşifası). Sivas, Turkey. August 15, 2000. The main entrance to the mosque is on the northern side and is marked by a tall portal which is celebrated for the quality and density of its high-relief stone carving. The north portal of the mosque has particularly imposing and extensively decorated disks.The protruding from the wall rectangular structure of the northern portal dominates the only the eaves and is the dominant element of the overall facade design dar. Its contours and inner structure are geometric and partially dimensional dissolved kicking floral ornaments from the surface. The central base structure forms an area represented by a round edge pointed arch, which is skipped in several places of plant tendrils. The areas to the outer edge are littered with large fancy leaf shapes, which can be interpreted as a tree of life motif. The wreath of life used on the portal on the north facade is noteworthy, as it depicts an imaginary plant world that only existed in the imagination of the craftsman.
