The tessellation and drawing in the figure below depicts two types of dinosaurs and a small farm. Just as the dinosaurs are extinct the small family owned farm is slowly becoming extinct. The tessellations are of a tyrannosaurus and a triceratops meeting each other on the page. I believe they are both C1 types of tessellations. The barn is similar to many barns I saw growing up in the Midwest. Many of them are now falling down or need serious repair. When you see these barns many times their roofs are collapsing or they are leaning and you can see the purlins or other parts of the structural "bones" that have been exposed by time. They remind me of the dinosaur bones unearthed by archeologists. The sun is setting in the background and shadows are forming. Hopefully time will not set on the small family farm.
Michael Wilson has been creating tessellation art for over 40 years and is preparing this blog to share thoughts on the subject.
