These elegant Alhambra Geometric Tile Cufflinks are inspired by the tile mosaics in the Alhambra palace and fortress complex located in Granada, Andalusia, Spain. The Alhambra tiles are remarkable in that they contain nearly all of the seventeen possible wallpaper groups (mathematical classification of a two-dimensional repetitive pattern, based on the symmetries in the pattern). M. C. Escher's visit to the Alhambra and study of the Moorish symmetries in the tiles inspired his subsequent work on tessellation, which he called "regular divisions of the plane”. The cufflinks have straight-legged rhodium plated findings with a fixed oval back. Cufflink face dimensions: 0.67” x 0.67” (17mm x 17mm). Gift boxed. Made in Great Britain.
