Tessellations Transform The Palace Hotel

A palindrome means that something can look the same backwards and forwards.

A tessellation is an arrangement of shapes closely fitted together in a repeated pattern.

Over 2,200 years ago, ancient Greeks were transforming their homes with tessellations, making elaborate mosaics from tiny, square tiles. Early Persian and Islamic artists also created spectacular tessellating designs. More recently, the Dutch artist M. C. Escher used tessellation to create patterns of interlocking creatures, such as birds and fish.
