Zahir is developed from the complex geometries of the Rhombic Triacontahedron – based on the repetition of the rhombus – which is itself in proportion to the Golden Ratio. The traditional Islamic motif has undergone an orthographic extrapolation to offer the illusion of the cubes within the structure. The Motif originates from the Great Mosque of Cordoba, Spain AD 784. Moorhouse reworks these two dimension forms found in the mosques tiling and engraving and reworks this into a three dimensional form retaining the harmony and balance of the original designs, with the resulting spherical form offering and endless geometric tessellation.
