A tessellation can be defined as as endless drawing which fills the complete plane just like the tiles in a bathroom which fills a complete wall f.e. with squares or rectangles. But a tessellation can also be made out of recognizable figures such as births, fishes etc.

"Seals" is a tessellation with a borderlimit. The closer you look to the border the smaller the seals become, and to reach the border one needs an endless number of endless small seals.

The drawing is based on rectangular isosceles triangles. On each side of the triangles a smaller triangles is drawn etc. etc. The triangles are then deformed into seals.
