Tessellation and Symmetry ( By Kevin Xu)

Posted on Updated on

Tessellation and Symmetry are just another pair of things that nature and maths has given us but we are not willing to take in the intense beauty around us. Symmetry has many types such as Rotational, Translation and Reflectional. Tessellation can be found quite easily in nature if people are willing to not just look around the world they live in but look deep inside its beauty. The beehive is a classic example of tessellation as its hive consists of hexagons.The skin of a snake can be another form of tessellation along with the pineapple. Some examples of symmetry in nature are the starfruit, the human body, birds and many other examples. I learnt that nature is a form of perfection and beauty and just by the borders of any country there is perfection on the self similarity of the coastline. Nature, the real OCD ever to exist!
