And despite the remarkable complexity of these designs, they can be created with just a compass to draw circles and a ruler to make lines within them.

I am not an artist, nor did I create any geometrical patterns, but I did This book brought me so much joy this year. I am not an artist, nor did I create any geometrical patterns, but I did have such a relaxing, lovely time coloring these patterns and learning about the buildings where they are from. Using this gorgeous book is a superb way to teach oneself the masterpieces of Islamic architecture.

There are 48 different patterns on individual sheets inside, each labeled with the building and location it came from. I wish Eric had also told us where on the building the pattern is located. Later, we had an expert in Islamic Geometrical Patterns take us on an initial pattern hunt around Istanbul and we will repeat the experience.

Muslim rule and compass: the magic of Islamic geometric design

Early stage[ edit ] The earliest geometrical forms in Islamic art were occasional isolated geometric shapes such as 8-pointed stars and lozenges containing squares. These date from in the Great Mosque of Kairouan , Tunisia, and since then have spread all across the Islamic world. Abstract 6- and 8-point shapes appear in the Tower of Kharaqan at Qazvin , Persia in , and the Al-Juyushi Mosque, Egypt in , again becoming widespread from there, though 6-point patterns are rare in Turkey. These patterns are rarely found outside these two regions. More elaborate combined point geometrical patterns are found in the Sultan Hasan complex in Cairo in , but rarely elsewhere. Finally, point patterns appear in the Jama Masjid at Fatehpur Sikri in India in —, but in few other places. These include ceramics, [26] girih strapwork, [27] jali pierced stone screens, [28] kilim rugs, [29] leather, [30] metalwork, [31] muqarnas vaulting, [32] shakaba stained glass, [33] woodwork, [27] and zellige tiling.
