A tetracontakaidigon (42-gon)

Here's my first attempt at an arc-shaped tesselation of triangular designs. I'm exploring the possibility of plane symmetry groups composed of triangles instead of the usual rectangular pattern. This could carry over into space groups since a mosaic of triangles can approximate a 3-dimensional curved shape. I am inspired by physicists like Renate Loll, who connect triangles to simulate multi-dimensional universes.
