Dancing birds
60 x 60 cm
mixed
2015

The first level is a non periodic pattern with 7-fold local symmetry, made of 3 rhombuses and an inflation process.

Behind is a new pattern in the traditional style that Moroccan craftsmen call "Pattern that drives you crazy".

So, removing a white rhombus gives way to a colored feather.

Each bird is made of 12 feathers (3 medium and 9 small rhombuses).
