These doors are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City. The late thirteenth century carved wooden doors are probably from a Beyhaqkim Mosque, Anatoloa, Konya. they are decorated with a radiating interlacing star pattern with epigraphic and arabesque panels at the top and bottom. They are inscribed, “The wise one is he who has learned a lesson form experience. And the ignorant one is he who does not think of the consequences.”
