2. Here's my favorite site on Islamic/Arabic art and Sacred Geometry:

Arabic / Islamic Geometry 01 (1st of 4 pages)

It's quite extensive in information and diagrams about the geometry used in such art, and the whole site goes into much more, as seen by the links across the top of that page. I haven't read it all, yet it's certainly inspiring to anyone interested in artistic patterns.

I'm going to watch the video now, so thanks for posting it!
