During this class you will learn the biomorphic and geometric patterns associated with the Seljuk Empire of Anatolia. We will look at the different patterns found throughout the area as well as make comparisons to Persian Seljuk and Uzbek patterns of the same time period. We will explore these patterns by constructing them using ruler, pencil and compass.

The symbolism, historical significance and and spiritual importance of some motifs will be shared at the beginning of the class as a part of a short presentation that will allow students to become acquainted with the subject matter in a deeper way.

This is a two part class. This is the second part of the Turkish Patterns course.
