A REPETITIVE DESIGN with photos showing one and 16 tiles

A one-tile design which when rotated forms a pattern.
The photos are of two classical designs painted in polychrome and monochromatic blue. Hundreds of this type of design can be found throughout Spain. The big photos have 16 tiles, to show the rotation of the design, which creates the pattern. It is the same design in polychrome and blue and next to them is one tile of each color.
