The Golden Centaur is a mythical creature that plays the pan flute so beautifully its said to turn fall leaves to gold. The figure below is a tessellation of the Golden Centaur. The tessellation is in the family of C1 (Polya). I made several tries at a centaur in motion and after a number of attempts this is the outcome . The figure is very recent but I also created a standing centaur during this development several months ago. The centaur doesn't appear to be a common tessellation theme, however John Osborne did create a standing figure. I have not seen others but would be interested in knowing if they are out there.
Michael Wilson has been creating tessellation art for over 30 years and is preparing this blog to share thoughts on the subject.
