A clear photo of Mosque of Abd al-Gani al-Fakhri has resulted in producing a pattern significantly different from that of Bourgoin.
Geometry
- The symmetry group of the tiling is *632 (p6m).
- All the internal angles of the constituent polygons are a multiple of 1.25°.
- Contains one regular three-pointed star polygon with vertex angle of 112.5°.
- Contains one regular 12-pointed star polygon with vertex angle of 52.5°.
- There are 6 non-regular reflective tiles (including one kite).
- The tiling satisfies the interlace condition and has no finite interlace and one infinite interlace with non-straight cross-overs.
- The tiling is edge-to-edge.
- As drawn, contains about 351 polygons.
