Zigzag Motif Spiral Staircase Ceiling (Minus Stairs)
The spiral staircase is developed with the Zigzag Motif. This accounts for its serpentine aspect. The mirror image of this is the other chiral version of ‘Zigzag’. Think of it as screws twisting in opposite directions. The tightest spiral has an inner diameter of zero (0). This Zigzag spiral staircase has an inner diameter which is one half (1/2) of the width of the muqarnas spiral ring.
The distinctly serpentine, snakeskin look of the Zigzag design creates a seductive Byzantine spiral staircase ceiling design. The Zigzag spiral staircase ceiling design can be compared to similar staircase ceiling designs using the Ray and Crescent designs.
