Escher style Geometry Art from J. R. Masterman's 9th grade geometry class

pnwheel motif first-time abstract geometric (alhambra-style) tessellation art by a 9th grade geometry student


In Vicky's pretty, colorful art it's hard to decide whether we're looking at rotational (spin, turn) tessellation symmetry or translational (slide) symmetry because honestly, we're looking at both. If you focus on those three-bladed propellor shapes, 6 of them rotate around a central point making a hexagonal flower shape. If you focus on the hexagons, they repeat horizontally and vertically by being "translated" (moved) along the X and/or Y axis without rotating.

Just for fun, compare Vicky's Pinwheels to a similar tessellation that also uses groups of 6 three-bladed propellor shapes, All Aswirl by Violet.
