Art Print Description:
As my time in Egypt drew to a close, I had the opportunity to experience the Alabaster Mosque. The mosque seen in this Cairo print is officially the Mosque of Muhammad Ali Pasha. It is as you can see a massive piece of Classic Ottoman architecture which towers over Cairo from the summit of the old Citadel. It was built by Muhammad Ali Pasha, ruler of Egypt, in memory of his late son, Tusun. As such, the inside and outside of this 19th century mosque is simply on a grand, regal scale. There is a real sense of old world craftsmanship in all the architectural details from the delicate minarets to the great lead domes. Truly the Alabaster Mosque is a work of art in its own right.
If you look closer at this Alabaster Mosque print you’ll notice the lower portion and upper portion of the Mosque are of different types of stone. It was originally intended to all be alabaster but by the time it was completed decades later, just the lower section retained its planned alabaster panels. The upper stories are in limestone which looks so natural you would think it was always planned that way. But it’s an interesting bit of trivia that the Alabaster Mosque really isn’t as alabaster as it was intended to be.
The Alabaster Mosque today is something of a museum piece. It’s still officially a place of worship, but it appears that like many heritage buildings, the tourists far exceed the locals. In fact, if you look at the people surrounding the Alabaster Mosque in this print, you’ll see a good many of them are clearly travelers from other lands who likewise came to see that beautiful old building reaching into the skies over Cairo.
Have you visited the Alabaster Mosque in Cairo? Or perhaps the exotic architecture simply appeals to you? Whatever the case, I would love to hear what you find most striking about this particular print?

I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!!
Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
Unlike a purchase from a big box store, your print purchase from this site directly supports this artist. Thank you for making a difference!
