Jungle

I'm not sure why I'm calling this a jungle. This pattern is a variant of the one on Tuesday, August 15, 2006. The pattern comes from putting a zig-zag of triangles into every loop in the original. For instance, the original has loops or six pentagons that form a rhombus hole in the middle. Here the rhombus is transformed into curved triangles (the triangle in the middle is just for decoration). On close examination, There are still only two orientations of the pentagons--half the pentagons have a vertical side.

how did you generate this picture?

This was generated using a PolygonR&D program. This one is a little bit more tricky than most you've seen before. It would have been a pain to create in TileLand.
