The following post will include an example of a spiral tessellation. I am unaware of any symmetry groups that describe spirals. This tessellation is based on a P1 tile of an owl. I have called it an S1 symmetry group. Figure 1 depicts a double spiral tessellation of the owl motif. Figure 2 depicts a page from my sketchbook of the original idea. This is translation and I choose the double as it seemed more interesting than a single spiral. This design is similar to the lizard in my print "One World" since it covers the sphere in a spiral. I am researching some ideas into multiple motif spirals and different ways to combine them.
