The tessellation above is shown in primary colors. The one below is rendered in shades of blue.
I wonder if other people find tessellation relaxing?
This tessellation is made only of regular polygons: triangles, squares, and dodecagons.
To make this, I used Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator to take the image I blogged here, and then project it onto the faces of a rhombic dodecahedron. Next, I put that polyhedron into motion for the .gif shown below.
If you’d like to give Stella a free try, the site to visit is http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
This decagonal mandala is split into fifty golden triangles (shown in yellow), and forty golden gnomons (shown in orange).
This is a modification of the well-known tessellation of the plane with squares and regular octagons.
Is there anything more relaxing than constructing a tessellation?
