Islamic geometric decorative patterns consisting of 4 different ornaments. Geometric patterns belonging to classical Islamic art.
Figurative arts are forbidden in Islamic art in order to avoid those becoming objects of worship. Therefore, the transformation of geometry into an art form has reached its peak in Islamic civilization. Geometric patterns were also present in ancient times before Islam. Muslims embraced the basic elements of the Greek, Roman and Sassanids in the classical tradition that preceded them. They then reinvented these motifs in a more complex, more detailed and grandiose way, symbolizing unity and order.
The difference of Islamic geometric art from its predecessors is that it includes different sciences such as mathematics and astronomy. This movement, with the contribution of other sciences, was more intellectual and mystical than its predecessors. The unity and order of the cosmos and the natural world began to be symbolized in these patterns. Infinite cyclic laws, natural symmetries are reflected in these patterns. Geometric patterns that adorned the places of worship were the focus of contemplation and not worship.
The basic feature of Islamic patterns is that they are built on repetition, overlapping and displaced squares and circles. Simple forms such as squares and circles were merged, multiplied and arranged with complex combinations. On the other hand, there is an absolute order that reaches to eternity in this repetitive, reflected and rotated complex. These patterns are actually a reflection of the universe.
In this project, we have drawn 4 different ornament designs which can be an example of geometric Islamic art. Islamic geometric patterns are often used in CNC routers and laser cutters to make panels, ceiling ornaments, decorative tiles and ornaments. Our designs files are suitable for cutting on these CNC based machines. If you are using Autocad or similar CAD software, you can scale dwg and dxf files in them. With the drawings you scaled, you can cut materials such as mdf, plywood, wood and acrylic smoothly on these cutting machines.
