Islamic Geometric Pattern: A Classic Example of Islamic Geometric Art
This vector design is a classic example of Islamic geometric art. It features two overlapping squares rotated 45 degrees from their centers. Within the resulting structure created by the angles between the squares are intricate Islamic geometric motifs, while the eight triangles surrounding the structure are adorned with Arabic floral decorations.
The Importance of Geometric Elements in Islamic Art
Geometric elements have always been prominent in Islamic art, with figural elements being largely avoided. There are several reasons for this. Firstly, Islam emerged as a monotheistic faith in opposition to polytheistic beliefs, with traditional pagan beliefs being strongly rejected. Thus, Islamic art steers clear of figural elements that might hark back to pagan beliefs.
Furthermore, Islamic civilization, which spread across three continents, was highly advanced in fields such as science, astronomy, mathematics, and geometry. This progress was reflected in their art, with numerological approaches such as Hurufism spreading throughout Islamic culture. Islamic art has thus incorporated mathematical, geometrical, and astrological knowledge, reflecting these elements in a wide variety of works through geometric symbols and motifs.
The Symbolism of this Islamic Geometric Pattern
This particular design is a great example of a classic Islamic geometric art form, symbolizing the order and harmony of the universe. We have made this design available in seven different file formats, including vector, artistic template, and CAD files.
Multiple File Formats for Versatile Usage
In the PNG file, you will find this Islamic design in both graphic and line art drawings. The PNG file is high-resolution and transparent. The SVG and CDR files are scalable Islamic art vector files. The SVG file is also compatible with digital cutting machines. The PDF file includes an outline template of the design, which is ideal for printing as a coloring page or for other craft activities. The DXF and DWG files feature CAD drawings of the design, which can be used as CAD blocks in your Islamic or Arabic art-themed CAD projects. Our free DXF and DWG files are also cutting files for CNC-based laser and plasma cutters. With these files, you can cut materials such as wood, metal, and acrylic to create a decorative wall art object or Islamic ornament. Finally, the STL file includes a 3D CAD drawing of the design.
