remove from album

A roman mosaic in Brescia, at the Domus dell’Ortaglia; the mosaic, that has a scheme of symmetry of type 442,can be obtained using this module. You can compare this mosaic with the paving obtained in a square room of mirrors with the same module. The two pavings are different; in fact, the mosaic in this photo doesn’t have any symmetry axes and it can’t be reproduced in a room of mirrors.
