CATS by Luca

This type of tessellation art is known as "translational" ("slide", "glide") symmetry because each tile reproduces by sliding along to a new position without rotating, resizing, or flipping into a mirror image of itself.

I'm not 100% sure, but I assume Luca used our "TRACING PAPER" method, also known as the Flying Hamster Crayon Toss, to make this tessellation.

The neatly folded tails, I'm told, were inspired by the classic Swingline™ Stapler, an unfortunate incident involving Alfred (the class pet), and Mrs. Harryhausenmuenster (the school nurse and expert arc welder). All we know for sure is the cats seem to like it that way, especially in cold or rainy weather, and Mrs. Harryhausenmuenster now walks with a limp.
