Original Art: Photograph by Gérard Degeorge
Era: Contemporary photograph of historical architecture
Region: Western Islamic world
Photographer Gérard Degeorge has travelled the world, capturing grand pieces of architectural design through the scope of his lens. Paperblanks’ Granada Turquoise design comes from his vast collection of photography. It is reminiscent of the Alhambra in Granada, Spain, now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
This unique black and white pattern, speckled with pops of turquoise, represents one of the most magnificent forms of decorative art – that of Islamic tilework. Unlike many other religious artistic traditions, Islamic artists follow the concept of “aniconism,” meaning that the creation of living beings is only for God and should therefore be left out of the artwork they create. In lieu of human or animal figures, this style of art includes three key elements: floral motifs, geometric designs and calligraphy.
