African Vector Illustartion

Long back, I read an article about patterns in African paintings.
One of them attracted me a lot.
It was more like a mathematical drawing than a artifact.
I gave it to my wife.
She used that pattern in the Sankranti Rangoli competition and won the best prize.

Now, I have seen another pattern.
It is neither a modern work, nor mathematical.
It is traditional African pattern I am told!
Patterns evolving and expanding mathematically are common in our Muggu, Kolam and Rangoli tradition too!

Do we find anything similar from our country?
Help me in location them please!
