These are three modern patterns inspired by Ancient Greece and Egypt, with the anthemion and conventionalized lotus as their main motifs.

All three patterns are practical because they can be equally used like square patterns and repeating patterns. Since they have axes of symmetry, it is enough to draw only one-eighth of the pattern, which can then be used to form the entire pattern. As you can see, we haven't paid much attention to the coloring – the patterns offered to you are painted in the same way as the originals in the old book. This means that you will have the opportunity to prove your artistic talent and paint them much nicer yourselves!

These patterns were our “love at first sight” because they are simple in appearance, drawn in a modern way and really pleasing to the eye, plus they consist of very old motifs! Don't take the word ‘modern’ literally – it refers to ‘more modern’ in relation to the patterns of Ancient Greece and Egypt. To be precise, they were found in a book published in 1876, which makes them almost 150 years old. They still look beautiful today and can certainly be used in many ways. If you are the creative type and feel like playing with colors, and if you have come up with an adequate idea on ​​how to use them, feel free to download these beauties!
