Carving a line of snoozing dogs

2015/12/30

Drew a slew of these dog packs. A line symmetry system instead of a plane symmetry system. Built on a vertical stack of glide reflected dogs. Peacefully snoring, on her back, on her couch, all fours up in the air, her tail draped over the lower dog; the white tail tip is a clue. Takes a while to fully comprehend the construction. Will take a bit of effort to carve it as well.

Here’s a photo with the design copied onto the alder plank, and a few perimeter cuts. Should be interesting once it’s all done. Might even do a bit of wood burning to accents parts.

  1. This subtle repeating pattern of animals is just the sort of thing (and what fun to be involved) I’d love someone to do based on some of my lattice labyrinth family of repeating patterns (tessellations), for instance to the simple “seahorses” tessellation that forms the background to latticelabyrinth blog posts. This process is sometimes called “Escherization” (term maybe due to Robert Fathauer)
