He explained: "we have chosen a type and a size of the Kashi that has the advantage of light weight and a thickness of 1cm, as well as engravings and motifs that are consistent with what exists in the corridors of the sacred sanctuary in order to create a kind of symmetry, and that is characterized by its solidity, flexibility and its resistance to the extreme weather conditions, also by its different sizes depending on the measurements of each dome, as there are fourteen small domes that symbolize the fourteen infallible of Ahl Al-Bayt (peace be upon them), the diameter of each is of 5m, with a height of 3m. And, four other bigger domes, with a diameter of 9m each and a height of 5m, the first one will be named after Lady Um Al-Baneen the mother of Aba Al-Fadl (peace be upon both of them) and the three others named after the three brothers of Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) who were martyred in the timeless advent of Ashura."
