Musica Aperiodica III Limited Edition of 12

This design at first appears much more peaceful and symmetrical than the first two in the series. But something odd happens inside the pattern. Shooting diagonals, verticals and horizontals appear, and they are not symmetrical. These shooting stars create constellations in the universe of rings.

Composed of on a tiling made from equilateral triangles and squares, this is actually an aperiodic tiling, which causes the strange visual effects. Different edge matching rules only allow particular arrangements of the tiles. Like the other two Musica designs, the pattern resolves at the edges to a symmetrical condition.
