How do people express their faiths through the arts?

Islamic Patterns


These patterns are a type of art found in the Islamic religion.

They can be found inside and outside mosques - the Moslem place of holy worship.

Many Moslems do not think it is acceptable to draw god - or Allah - or any creature, so that is why they use pattern a lot.


We chose colours and looked carefully at the shapes to complete these examples of Islamic art.
