Though not readily apparent, there is a diamond shape imbedded in the lines of
this drawing, whose four quadrants are transforms of each other--reorderings of
their tiles based on column and row exchanges. Those operations are obscured
by the rule-based dissolving of lines in the basic geometric shapes of the tiles,
which leads to new, emergent shapes. The diamond pattern is made explicit
in Diamante II.
