TOO MUCH FACIAL HAIR by Tori C.

This is a classic translation (sliding, gliding) tessellation. See how all the faces are pointed (very pointed) in one direction, without a change in their tilt. This is what we mean by "translation" and "sliding".

Faces and heads are one of the most popular tessellation themes for beginners. You'll see several more in Ms. David's 2012 class's gallery.
