“All a Flutter” Mandala [1]

On June 28, I started painting the “All a Flutter” mandala.  I’m using Zig brand scrapbook markers.  This design is a hyperbolic tessellation which you can read more about on my hyperbolic tesselations web site.  MC Escher used the concept of hyperbolic tessellation for his Circle Limit series, “Angels and Demons” being his most popular one.

I called this “All a Flutter” because the pattern reminds me of an image of flapping hummingbird wings as if captured via a high-speed camera.
