One can categorize these elements into religious beliefs of mobs and the pure Islamic Wisdom. Some of these signs such as dot and circle in the realm of Islamic Philosophy, the importance of lectures, personalizing the letters, world of images or supernatural, etc. can bring the interpretation of modern art close to the way the philosophic interpreters did it for the Islamic art.
