The arch or dome in Nubian design is not just to look attractive, it is also practical. Hot air rises and by channelling this via a dome the room itself is cooler. Simple, eco friendly and practical, that is the Nubian way.
When building the arches, these are put together separately around a form and then insertedinto place. Ours were done by craftsmen from Edfu.
They then used shoe polish to make the bricks attractive and white paint.
