Wallpaper Patterns on Tapestries

I’ve always been obsessed with tapestries whether they are authentic fabrics from other countries or just ones that you can buy off of Amazon. I have a black and white tapestry in my room above my bed that I just love, and it was on sale so I had to get it.

In the picture above is the design in the center of my tapestry.  It is dihedral and can rotate around the center 16 times from what I can count here, because I wasn’t sitting there counting the pattern in my room in my free time.

As you can see here, there is rotational, horizontal, and vertical symmetry here.  This is the pattern surrounding the main design on the inside.  It repeats over and over again all throughout the outside.

If you’d like to learn more about how tapestries are made, I’d advise you to check out this website. Enjoy!
