Fun On Friday #46: Tessellation - Creativity and Mathematics

Tessellation with squares - easy. Tessellating triangles - a doodle. Tessellating hexagons - even bees can do that. But tessellating rhinoceroses - now that's tricky!

Escher Symmetry

However, if you head over to the Tessellation website, you will find instructions on how to create tricky tessellations. The sample image they use is... a rhinoceros. Brilliant.

So, if you've ever wanted to produce something approaching Escher like complexity, grab some tracing paper and get busy.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you produce.
