Tesselations












Studying M.C. Escher and his geometric Tessellation's. 
This was harder than it looks! 
In short, a tessellation is any repeating pattern of interlocking shapes. Tessellations are also sometimes known as tilings, but the word "tilings" usually refers to patterns of polygons (shapes with straight boundaries). The definition sounds fairly simple, but the ideas involved in designing and understanding tessellations can grow very complex and interesting.
