Islamic star patterns are a beautiful and highly geometric art form. Many analyses have been done of their complex structure and symmetries. We pick up one line of analysis based on placing stars and rosettes in a formation dictated by a tiling of the plane, and develop a software implementation of the technique. We discuss the construction of the designs and show some computer-generated results.

Islamic star patterns in absolute geometry

We present Najm, a set of tools built on the axioms of absolute geometry for exploring the design space of Islamic star patterns. Our approach makes use of a novel family of tilings, called

Hyperbolic Islamic Patterns -- A Beginning

For more than a millennium, Islamic artists and craftsmen have used geometric patterns to decorate buildings, cloth, pottery, and other artifacts. Many of these patterns were “wallpaper” patterns —
