This NFT is a 6-7 second video where I fly you through spinning patterns built around a 11 point star.

This has been my most involved NFT project so far, because I recreated the pattern by hand after seeing an image from A.J. Lee's journal on Islamic star patterns (http://www.tilingsearch.org/tony/). After making the pattern, I imported it into Blender and gave it depth and a glass texture. The colors you see in the NFT video are just reflections of lights that I've placed in the scene. The camera dives through these patterns towards a light filled grid down below.

I saw these patterns first hand when I visited the Alhambra in Grenada, Spain. It filled me with awe and silence seeing such perfection with paint and carvings on the walls and ceilings of the palace.

If you are feeling adventurous, I've come up with a decent way to recreate the star pattern. It helps if you use Inkscape or some other vector program.

Or you could try it by hand!

Oohh!! I almost forgot to mention that the 3rd edition price is 90% of the 2nd edition. Only three editions available.
