Geometric influence in Divine Calculation.
Geometric patterns are popularly associated with Islamic art ( even though the origins are Greek ) largely due to its aniconic quality. Islamic craftsmen turned geometry into an artform because pictures of people were not allowed in holy places, so they developed an instantly recognizable aesthetic based on repeated geometrical shapes.
Consisting of simple forms such as the circle and the square, geometric patterns were combined, duplicated, interlaced, and arranged in intricate combination, thus becoming one of the most distinguishing features of Islamic art. The significant intellectual contributions of Islamic mathematicians, astronomers and scientists were essential to the creation of this unique style.
In exploring the design created using basic mathematical set, we will have a short lecture on how mathematics and its simple calculations were used by the Sahabah and Islamic scholars in Astronomy and other divine creations.
