“Geometric cosmology provides a tangible means of examining the intrinsic order
of the Universe. It shows how the microcosm reflects the macrocosm. It is both
exoteric and esoteric, providing an interface between the seen and unseen, the
quantitative and qualitative, the finite and infinite. It symbolizes the relationship
of form, movement, space and time.
Everything that appears solid in the world is actually in a state of vibration.
Nature is abuzz with pulses, oscillations, wave motions, rhythms and cycles in a
vast spectrum of universal energies—all of which can be defined as vibration and
frequency. Frequency can be expressed through number and number through
shape and form—which is geometry.”

Characteristic of Islamic art, which is by no means unique to the style, but nonetheless notable, is the typical use of a very formal balance. The principles of balance and symmetry are strictly observed. In order to achieve symmetry the artist will repeat the same exact elements on both halves of a piece of art in reversed order, so that both halves mirror one another. Alternatively, a basic pattern may be constantly repeated across an expanse or around a central design or medallion.
