Art and Unity – El arte y la Unidad

The idea dominating all Islamic art is that of unity. The world manifests Divine Unity in multiple mode. "Unity in multiplicity" mirrors "Multiplicity in Unity"
Unity is reflected in the harmony of the multiple, in order and in equiibrium; beauty has all these aspects within itself. To start from the beauty of the world and arrive at Unity – that is wisdom.

La idea dominante en el arte islámico es la de la unidad. El mundo manifiesta la Unidad divina en modalidad múltiple. La "Unidad en la multiplicidad" refleja la "multiplicidad en la Unidad".
La Unidad se refleja en la armonía de lo múltiple, en el orden y en el equilibrio; la belleza tiene todos estos aspectos en sí misma. Empezar con la belleza del mundo y llegar a la Unidad – eso es sabiduría.
