book description

For centuries Islamic art has been misunderstood in the West, often being regarded as pure decoration. However, its abstract patterns have meaning: they affirm religion and the essential unity of all things.
This fascinating scholarly study explains how the geometrical patterns of Islamic art reveal to believers the cosmological laws affecting all Creation. The primary function of these patterns is to lead the mind from the literal world towards an underlying reality.
