      Hi Steven. Not yet.

      Warda Bashuaib took a great photograph of the complete pattern. There is so much more to this pattern than what was drawn by Eric. All I can say at this stage is the traditional method will reveal the correct proportions and angles of all the elements in the design. Mohamad Aljanabi’s traditional method is far more robust and practical in its application.
