Girih pattern

Girih tiles are the basic-principle of timeless, aesthetic and complex ornament-pattern, which can be found in the
architecture of the ottoman Empire. Throuh the implementation of girih tiles it was possible to design in a simple and
fast way very complex and intricate patterns.
The girih tiles consist of five tiles, constructed of lowly polygons. Each of their edges has the same length. The girih tiles
have decorating lines, which intersect the mid-point of every edge. When one adds the tiles together they become an
unlimited grid. Patterns with periodic and aperiodic repeat themselves.
