Saint Louis University's Prison Program is an educational program for both inmates and staff.

Math and the Art of Escher is one of the courses offered and the work shown on this page represents the mathematical artwork produced during the nine week course.

Rosette and Border Patterns

The Rosette patterns are finite motifs classified by the reflections they may or may not have and the order of the rotation.
