A tessellation of pentagons

add to album

A tessellation in equal pentagons. It is the dual tessellation of the uniform tessellation (3,3,4,3,4), made of equilateral triangles and squares. It is an example of pattern 4*2 and we can imagine to obtain it by superimposing two tessellations in non-regular hexagons. It has an important role in the construction of the 120-cell, one of the six regular polytopes in dimension 4.
