http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84509
Symmetry is used to analyze the patterns in Oriental carpets. Educational activities are provided along with other educational resources. This web site is a collaborative project of The Textile Museum and The Math Forum.Escher and the Droste Effect
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83200
The goal of this site is to visualize the mathematical structure behind M.C. Escher's picture called "Print Gallery" (1956). The visualization itself is largely non-mathematical and is accomplished through many still images and animations. The actual mathematics, involving conformal mappings of the complex plane, is contained in a pdf copy of the original AMS publication. The Droste Effect refers to any image that contains itself on a smaller scale.Fibonacci Numbers and The Golden Section in Art, Architecture and Music
