Islamic Design Motifs



























  



Picked up this amazing gem/book Islamic Designs by Russian art historian N. Simakoff from the Iliad Book Store the other week and quickly (and poorly) scanned some interesting motifs while flipping through the book.  Most of the designs were drawn from carpets, textiles, carved wood, plaster and stone, tiles, decorative painting of buildings and furnishings, metalwork, jewelry, and other miscellaneous artifacts.  Great use of ornate curves and angulature in these.
