Again, I’m still amazed by the Dune film by Dennis Villeneuve. The architectural language at Arrakis planet was mind blowing, especially the connections with the Nabatean Kingdom and their utilization of rock carving and plaster finish. However, after a second watch, I have felt that the architectural designer of the movie was inspired, somehow, to a further extent, by the work of Jordanian architects! Please scroll down and check the following screen grabs and photos, and let me know what do you think?
I didn’t post anything here for a long time, so I decided to make a good return with this photographic article, I have recently visited Al-Hallabat historic site in Zarqa governorate, it includes the magnificent Umayyad palace and mosque, over a hill covered with unlimited textures and tones of flint stone, plus, while flipping the stones and big rocks you might be lucky as me and find glass, pottery and fossils!
Let’s start with stones:
The following capture is something! I was so amazed to find small fragments of mosaic scattered in the hill (Out side the historical palace and mosque) As you see, they comes in various colors, the different tones from lime green to turquoise are super rare to my eyes!
