A mosaic

add to album

This mosaic of Alhambra (Granada, Spain) has a symmetry of type 4*2 if we don’t consider the colouring. If we consider only the distintion white-coloured tiles (without distinguishing the various colours), the symmetry is 2*22. The symmetry is completely destroyed by the disposition of the colours in the tiles (at least for what we can see from this photo).
