The artistic representation of 'mango', 'aam', 'pine' or 'pine cone' eventually took the form of beautiful oriental motif called paisley. The paisley motifs can be seen now in prints, embroidery on fabrics or anywhere as an expression to represent perennial beauty.
The form originated in the Moghul period and was not seen before the 17th century. Now the motif itself has gathered a lot of vividness about it; it's seen as a sapling, leaves and flowers in various stages from initial buds to full bloom. Flowering plants, swirling vines, spiraling leaf arabesques are rendered in a natural, graceful style, that attempts to create a garden that is worn. The gentle hooked paisley seems to be swaying in one direction because of the breeze!
