Perhaps the most fundamental mathematical concept—Symmetry—is also the most widely witnessed by nature.

This art-quality print on heavy gloss stock features a dazzling array of images of every type of symmetry, including reflection, rotation, and translation symmetries, alone and in combination. The symmetries are not only represented in the shapes, but in the colors and the very structural principles inherent in each example. Our favorite? The astounding photo of the Cuvette Spider!

This durable, medium-sized art poster is suitable for framing, mounting, or hanging as is. (Dimensions: 19in/48cm tall and 13in/33cm wide.)
