Lion and Unicorn Specializes in ISLAMIC Pottery

Islamic art refers to the artistic expressions and creations produced in the context of Islamic culture and influenced by Islamic beliefs and principles. It is an art form that spans many centuries and encompasses a wide range of media, including architecture, calligraphy, ceramics, textiles, metalwork, and paintings.

Key Characteristics of Islamic Art:

  • Geometric and Floral Patterns: Islamic art is renowned for its intricate and elaborate geometric and floral patterns. These patterns, often based on complex mathematical principles, are used to decorate various art forms, such as tiles, carpets, and textiles.
  • Calligraphy: Islamic calligraphy holds a special place in Islamic art. Arabic script is used to write verses from the Quran or other sacred texts, and calligraphic art is often incorporated into various objects, buildings, and artworks.
  • Arabesques: Arabesque designs are another prominent feature of Islamic art. These flowing and decorative motifs are often used to embellish architectural elements and surfaces.
  • Aniconism: Islamic art tends to be non-representational, as the depiction of living beings, especially humans and animals, is discouraged in Islamic religious traditions. This principle, known as aniconism, has led to the development of intricate abstract and non-figurative art forms.
