Geometry in Islamic Design


1. Outline the basic shape within the circle: in this case, a hexagon.
2. Create the design within the shape: an eight pointed star
3. Create a pattern using the repeated shapes. Add color to define the image.


Look closely to find the hexagon within this design. Compare this design to tile designs from the Alhambra http://www2.spsu.edu/math/tile/grammar/moor.htm
