A set of four Ancient frieze patterns created in Inkscape vector editing software.

Inkscape software is completely free and represents a very good substitute for commercial applications such as Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw and the like. All four ancient frieze patterns were created to meet the needs of those who want to decorate items or 2D designs with frieze patterns inspired by Ancient Egypt and Greece. So you don’t have to study ancient art, we have drawn these patterns for you, and now you need to decide which one of the given four suits you the best.

Since these are frieze patterns, you can use them as such, you can also make borders or rectangular patterns from them, or decorate rotational objects (vases, dishes, etc.) with them. Ancient patterns may not be so popular with modern artists today, but it can be said with certainty that they will be interesting and applied for (we dare say) centuries to come. It should not be forgotten that, based on these ancient frieze patterns here, similar patterns can be made - one just needs to be creative and have interesting ideas. 

We hope that we have made happy all of you who needed ancient repeating patterns like these as soon as possible, and that we have your attention now to take a look at the whole category of ancient patterns (Ancient Greek and Roman ornaments and Ancient Egyptian patterns). 

These free frieze patterns can be used for different types of graphic or craft projects. By simply scaling and copying it is possible to create a pattern of any size.
