  3. 3. Art<br />Art in Pakistan dates back to more than 5,000 years to the period of the Indus civilization. An element of Islamic art usually found decorating the walls and window screens of mosques and Muslim homes and buildings, the arabesque is an elaborate application of repeating geometric forms that often echo the forms of plants, shapes and sometimes animals (specifically birds).<br />Today, Pakistani artists want to present themselves as modern according to international standards, and have adopted styles popular in the U.S. and Europe. Modern art was chosen as the country’s visual language because typical traditional art seemed to be inadequate to properly express the dreams and fears of a generation aiming towards a new era of freedom.<br />
