This type of decoration has been known for hundreds of years and there are various types of plasterwork such as. Nowadays, when architecture is dominated by steel, glass and various artificial materials, plasterwork is seldom used for decorating. It has been suppressed due to the production process itself, which is expensive and slow, it does not match today's modern architectural styles, nor does it fit into modern materials, and there are hardly any artists who know how to do it. Nowadays, it is used only when churches, mosques or madrasas are built, when some magnificent buildings inspired by old times are erected, or when old buildings are restored. All ornaments in the collection are old Arabic ornaments and their beauty is timeless. You can use them to make plasterwork, but also 3D bass-reliefs for 3D building models, wooden door and window moldings using a CNC machine, wooden decoration for fine furniture, etc.
