The molecule of this tessellation is made from a modified hex twist and represents a unicursal hexagram which is an interesting geometric shape that has also been used as a magical symbol. Unicursal means the outline can be traced with a single stroke without lifting the pen. In contrast to many modifications of hex twists, such as those found in Fujimoto’s stars (most of which are also tessellation molecules), this one has only two-fold rather than six-fold rotational symmetry.
