2 History of Tessellations
Started in Mesopotamia more than 6000 years ago Original designs were made from pebbles set in plaster, like a mosaic. As tessellations became more advanced, clay mosaic tiles were used to decorate walls, floors, and ceilings in castles and mosques. American Colonies in the 1600s created quilts, in tessellated patterns Later, the Dutch artist M.C. Escher popularized these designs in the 1920s.
