Tesselations of the Hyperbolic Plane and the Art of M.C.Escher

Short of hallucinogens, viewing the art of M .C. Escher is the fastest trip to infinity available in this dimension.

Escher produced four patterns using hyperbolic geometry: Circle Limit I, Circle Limit II, Circle Limit III, Circle Limit IV.

We will proceed to dive into the hyperbolic plane and the math of hyperbolic tessellations…
