The picture above is taken from Turkey, and as you can see that the two types of tile repeat themselves but the calligraphy and drawing inside make each one unique.
The one above is a blue glazed Islamic pattern, here the pattern is produced from repeated stars and hexagonal shapes. As you can see, each star and hexagon has the same interior design:. a floral motif stamped on them.
This carved wooden panel is similar to those usually found in mosques along the walls today. It is produces by overlapped tessellated hexagons. Here too, the tessellated shapes are filled with the same leaf and flower designs.
