Course Outline Description:
In this course we will begin with a single eight-fold rosette and learn to tesselate four of them into a square tile formation, allowing the internal pattern of stars and octagons to automatically emerge. A variation of this tessellation can be found in the wall ornamentation at the shrine of Sachal Sarmast, in Daraza Sharif, Sindh.
