Byzantine Pizza

Architecturally, this button looks Islamic to me with its arabesque makeup of shallowly carved lines and circles. For all I know, it could be emblematic of an Eastern religion. Then again, it reminds me of a stylized pizza divvied up into eight slices. One thing is certain: this black button is solid Bakelite and fancy enough to be a doorknob on the Turkish Ministry of Culture.
