The Ninja Stars

This tessellation is a rotation tessellation. The tessellation is made with straight line segments. You take the lasso and wrap around it. Then you rotate it 90 degress. You do this until you have 4 different figures. Then you make a dot. You get each shape and put it on the dot. Then when you do that you copy it. Then make a tessellation out of it. The tessellation looks like a lot of ninja stars together. Small and big ones are the only ones there that I can see.
