Woven Sevens Islamic Art Screen


I originally made this piece for an Egyptian friend who was returning to the US after 3 years in Egpyt, and wanted to get a piece of art commissioned to give to his mother. I spent weeks developing an original work inspired by Islamic geometry to properly honor the gift.  After much study, I eventually was able to understand the star tiling technique well enough to create something new, yet traditional.

The geometry this piece is composed of uses heptagons, irregular pentagons and tetradecagons, all forming an ever-weaving knot. The paths are fun to follow with your eyes!
