Patterns and tilings arranged by their symmetry groups

Each link leads to a page where you can compare different patterns with the same symmetry group.
You will see the same pattern showing up in different places over a period of thousands of years, in some cases.
In other cases you will see remarkably different patterns that share the same symmetry group.
