Among the various painting techniques, perhaps the most popular are floral ornaments. This motif was originally depicted on their household items, on clothes and in the interior of all the peoples of the world. And the thing is that flowers are one of the most beautiful creations of nature, and at the same time depicting them with a brush or chalk is as easy as shelling pears. Of course, the floral ornaments of different peoples differ significantly. Today we will look at those that have survived to this day, and are popular in clothing, interior design and painting.
Initially, people drew patterns in the form of combinations of geometric shapes and straight lines. A similar technique was inherent in ancient Egypt, the peoples of Mesopotamia, the Far Eastern states. That is why the first floral ornaments that appeared later had strict outlines, as they consisted of geometric shapes. A similar trend manifested itself in ancient Russian patterns, which are still used in the fine arts. Flower petals, their leaves and stems are entirely composed ofdiamonds, parallelograms, squares and triangles. Most often, such drawings are made in red and blue colors, and they decorate clothes, picture frames, dishes.
Later floral ornaments, so popular in our country, are Khokhloma and Gzhel. It is right to say that this type of art is more like whole paintings, rather than modest patterns. Khokhloma is an image of bright colors, made in red, yellow and orange tones. As for Gzhel, it is based on exquisite plants made in blue, blue, turquoise. It is believed that this is a tribute to the blue sky, clear rivers and field plants.
From ancient times to the present day, a pattern called “Turkish/oriental cucumber” has been popular. In clothes, interior, painting - this floral ornament is everywhere. Pictures depicting elongated cucumber fruits that grow in the eastern regions are one of the trends today. Sundresses, shawls and even suits are sewn from such fabrics. At the same time, a similar motif can be seen on the backgrounds of old paintings, on the walls of mosques and Muslim palaces.
Caucasian motifs are distinguished by unearthly beauty, which are called “gul”, which means “flower” in Russian. They are made in strict, saturated shades (green, red, blue), and the flowers themselves have sophisticated and at the same time strict features. Chinese folk motifs were no less beautiful. It is fair to say that such patterns are an ode toiris bushes: the Chinese have fully depicted the flowering, the leaves, and all the richness of this plant.

Photos of the original patterns presented in the article can serve as a platform for further work by contemporary artists. Such ornaments will be an excellent decoration of the interior.
