عنوان مقاله [English]
The mausoleum of twelve imams of Yazd is a thousand-year-old building with a valuable inscription in decorative Kufic script under the dome, which is very important in terms of visual richness and worthy of study. Gestalt is one of the theories of the visual perception process in psychology, and the principles of this theory can be useful in the recognition of works of art. The most important principles of Gestalt are the principle of similarity, symmetry, proximity, layering, integration, continuity, relationships between form and context, superimposition and common destiny. The inscription should be placed. In this way, the amount of use of these principles in its design will be determined and the quality of the resulting performance will be revealed.
This research seeks to answer the question that to what extent and how the principles of similarity, contiguity, symmetry, completion and overlap were used in the design of the inscription of the tomb of the twelve Imams of Yazd, and what is the degree of significance resulting from the use of each of these principles?
This research was carried out in a descriptive-analytical way and the data were collected through library studies and field surveys.
The results showed that the principles of similarity and overlap are used to a large extent, the principle of proximity and completion to a large extent, and the principle of symmetry to a moderate extent are used in this inscription. The result of the application of these principles is the realization of propaganda to a large extent, and as a result, the better organization of the components, the easier reception of the work and the active communication of the audience with the inscription.
