The above exhibition by Dr Briony Thomas (School of Design) opened in September 2007 at the University of Leeds International Textile Archive (ULITA), St Wilfred’s Chapel, Leeds.  It was inspired by the geometric designs at the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain.  It comprises a substantial collection of intricate two-dimensional patterns and tiling designs and three-dimensional patterned polyhedra. The collection focuses on the Platonic Polyhedra – the set of five regular polyhedra consisting of the tetrahedron, the cube, the octahedron, the dodecahedron and the icosahedron).
