Byzantine

The domes of the Hagia Sophia.

There is a dictionary definition of Byzantine which means complex. In reality it comes from the maze-like political structures and elaborate ceremonies but, I'd imagine, some of it has to do with the architecture.

This might be a good example. Even having taken the photo myself, I still had to sit there for a minute to figure out what was going on here. I can't really explain it, so I'll leave it up to you. The overlapping domes are really strange and seem sort of impossible, but that's the way it is.

Beautiful, nonetheless.
