THIS ISN'T AN iPHONE!

This is a classic translation (sliding, gliding) tessellation. See how all the faces and beaks and angry looks 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.

The theme you see here is "Angry Birds", a popular PC video game in 2010 ~ 2012.
