A rosette

remove from album

The drawing of one of the fifteen rosettes in the horizontal row lying in the middle of the façade of S. Maria Novella, in Florence.
You can see an other one; or you can see a photo of the same rosette.
The rosette has a dihedral symmetry type D4. If we consider separately the different annuli, we would have, from the interior top the exterior, symmetry types D4, D8, D16.

The image belongs to the sections...:
*4. (D4) (Symmetry)
*8. (D8) (Symmetry)
Decorations of walls and façades (Anthology of images)
Decorations of walls and façades (Symmetry)
Of higher order (Symmetry)
