The Islamic Calligraphy looks like a pattern, but it does not fit the definition of a pattern. The marks directions though are in a pattern. This give the calligraphy a flow just as the lines in the mens beards suggest a direction. So patterns can suggest directions by repetition.

Albrect Durer's drawing/watercolor of a birds wings show the patterns made by the color and feathers.

to answer the question where did pattern come from, it may have come from the bones and skins of animals

that early man saw in his world, nature i am sure played a big part to this use of pattern.

is a way to create order and order helps us understand our world.
