Plant motifs and patterns were used to decorate architecture and objects from the earliest Islamic period. Plants appear in many different forms in Islamic art, ranging from single motifs to extended patterns, and natural depictions of flowers to plant forms which are complicated and heavily stylized. Artists drew inspiration from different types of plants and flowers at different times. This elegant, arabesque designed mug is a handsome piece on any coffee table or desk. Makes a lovely gift for that coffee-lover or colleague.
