Dual Level Pattern from Shiraz



Dual Level Pattern from Shiraz


ONLINE presentation taught by Ameet Hindocha, Hosted by Adam Williamson.

The creation and application of dual-level or self-similar geometric patterns (where the same forms appear at two different scales in one design) is one of the creative and conceptual pinnacles of Islamic geometric design.
In this class we will construct this beautiful example from the Vakil Mosque in Shiraz, Iran and discuss techniques for bringing out the two levels in the design.
