the point of this is,
that using zero-thickness tetragona (skwares) leaves a bit
to be desired, especially since this exercise shows some
of the grou[theoretical nature of "qyoobing".

to be more precise, show the a)

the minimal space around it (the hull, and c)
the symmetry, and obvious singularities
