The Alhambra Tiles Silk Chiffon Scarf is 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”. Silk Chiffon. Hand rolled hems. Dimensions: 70” x 21” (180cm x 55cm) Dry Clean only.
