It is well known that there are seventeen wallpaper groups, that generate distinct tilings of the plane. Some of the famous Escher drawings are based on these groups. The Pavimenta program [2] uses these seventeen groups to gen- erate tilings of the plane using fundamental regions taken out of any image. Its ease of use makes it straightforward to create surprisingly beautiful tilings.
