This image, which I made a few years ago, is based on a tiling of the hyperbolic plane with triangles whose angles are π/2, π/3, π/7. Other than the 7, which can be changed to any higher integer, I couldn’t vary these numbers without ruining the effect. Recently I thought of a simpler, and thus more general, way to generate the ribbons.
