Although the close relationship with Star Labyrinth(60,27) is clear (see the last post), Honeycomb (60,27) makes quite a different overall impression. A central hexagonally symmetrical supertile of the IRISH GIANT is shown, together with six fainter fellows, just to prove it really does tessellate. Each supertile is comprised of 11,898 equilateral triangles.
I haven’t counted them, but trust the value of the expression 2(602 + 60×27 + 272), the expression in the brackets is known as a Loeschian Number.
Here is the full GIANInteresting how the eye/brain does not just interpret the colours differently according to the colour of their neighbours but is beginning to meld the red and yellow into orange and the blue and red into purple.Here, below, is just one of the supertiles of this Supergiant’s Causeway. Basalt never cooled like this.
