ANIMALS TESSELLATIONS GALLERY

The following drawings are all different of those of my "Figurative Tessellation Method". In this method you will find nearly 120 other tessellations with instructions for their creation.
The following tessellation were created using TesselManiac, a new software program by college Math/Computer Science instructor Kevin Lee. You can check it out at www.tesselmaniac.com. I finalized the tessellations using Illustrator for publication here.
New tessellations are added periodically.
Several drawings are presented for each of the 35 types of tessellations studied in my method.
For each tessellation I give three classifications, the first is from my method. The second is the isohedral type defined by
B. Grnbaum and G.C. Shephard. The final classification is the symmetry (wallpaper) group.
