More Nested Shapes in P4m

Along with symmetry group Pmm, this P4m group is my least explored. Only 5 attempts at creating tessellations. Again, I just don’t like the mirrors. I will have to test myself a bit more, one of these days.

In my opinion, the image below is not a true tessellation as the forest above the deer’s rack can be construed as negative space filler! Still, an interesting series of characters. Skinny legged AcornMan’s shoes filling some space between the four squirrels.

Above, a fit senior doing aerobics, a happy Buddhist (or Lai Tsi) wearing Keens, and a Rastafarian store clerk. Whatever. Don’t ask where these come from, Oxymora was the only way I could link them.

Below, one I’ve called Schoolyard Bullies, either the kid with the bat is the bully or the Flying nun. Probably not the salamander.

And probably my favourite up to now, is Prissy, Groovy and Cool; three funny characters, the long blond haired hippy with the peace t shirt, the super cool Batman kid, and the prissy girls filling in the rest of the space.

And that last symmetry group I need to upgrade is Pmm. I’ll work on it.
