Anatomy of an Escher Flying Horse

Escher is the artist that made the art of tessellation famous and popular. One of his simpler tessellations was his flying horses. They are based on the simple geometric shape of a square, and only involved “slides,” not rotations or flips. Using this video anyone could create their own tessellating flying horse tile, and maybe redo their bathroom tile or kitchen wall paper!
