Sixteen elaborate Arabic patterns ready to glow with color! Forbidden by their religion to depict the human figure, Islamic artists developed different motifs from those displayed in European art. Intricate patterns, created over the centuries by Muslim artists, depict — among other designs — a dazzling array of geometric figures. This striking collection incorporates a wide range of these designs: pentagons, squares, octagons, combinations of stars and rosettes, and more. Colorists of all ages can show off their creativity by filling in the designs with hues of their choice. Placing the finished work near a source of bright light will produce a lovely stained glass effect.
