Original Islamic Patterns: Grids and Repeated Single Element
All mosaic patterns come from the book, Islamic Geometric Patterns, by Eric Broug, Thames & Hudson Press
This book shows the basics of the geometric construction underlying the  various mosaic patterns and offers instructions on how to construct  complex mosaics based on examples in actual buildings.
Each mosaic frame is filled in using individual mosaic elements made from scans of  textured batik material and photographs of precious gems and stones.  Photoshop clipping masks are used to fill in the individual mosaic element with either a scan of cloth or gem.
