Solid Octahedrons

4. And you get this. There is a larger picture in 'Galleries - David's Galleries - Tessellations 3'.

This one is carved on a wooden ball about 7.5cms in diameter. The drill tip follows the wood grain and distorts the picture so I now use hard composition balls like the jack used in the game of bowls.

Please send in your tessellation efforts for the guest gallery or "real materials" gallery. You can send us a picture and description of your artwork by contacting us. Here's how.
