The name itself is based on the caption below the picture of this ornament in the above book, since it read that it was an ornament characteristic of Moorish architecture. Based on its appearance, we could have also called it a rectangular interlaced ornament, but we decided on its existing name due to the beauty of Moorish architecture.

Interlaced ornaments have been popular in various cultures throughout history, and they are still used today for various purposes. For this reason, we hope that you will have a good idea on how to use this ornament, and that this will not be limited to projects related to Moorish culture and architecture.

The ornament has been precisely drawn using the grid method and consists of only straight lines. It has a vertical axis of symmetry, and it is enough to draw only the half of it, then the whole ornament is easily obtained by copying with respect to the axis of symmetry (Mirror copy).
