An Escher-type Tessellation

Here’s a tessellation on a sphere, in the style popularised by the Dutch artist, Maurits C Escher. This one has been generated by computer, whereas Escher did his by hand and eye, which is almost beyond human understanding.

 

Escher also produced more interesting pictures related to the natural world, for example, this one of tessellated fish.
