  Restful restlessness  
RUMI wrote that we feel restless because we are so busy seeking restfulness. If we sought restlessness instead, then we would find restfulness. Here both are present in the same design; which we see depends on how and from where we view it.

If we focus on the detail, we see the basketwork of a madman, an insane chaotic lattice. There is such a frenetic mass of lines and small segments that it makes

the eyes jittery, enervates the mind, creating restlessness and unease. So life often appears when viewed from close-up.

When we draw back to survey the whole, what appeared as jagged zigzags seen from close-up seem more like ripples in a cosmic dance. From here, the coherence of the design emerges out of the chaos and the lines move towards stillness and balance. Now, the same design becomes relaxing to the spirit.
