Symmetry and Pattern: The Art of Oriental Rugs

Carol Bier of the Textile Museum examines symmetry and pattern in the context of Oriental carpets, with a wonderfully curated online gallery showing examples of different kinds of symmetrical pattern. It’s a terrifically rich resource—but be sure to return to the Title page after exploring each of the subdivisions, as the main table of contents appears only there. There are a number of simple student activities discussed under “Educational Resources.”
