M.C. Escher said, ‘Mathematicians go to the garden gate but they never venture through to appreciate the delights within.’ An observant pair of scientists discovered that medieval Muslim mathematicians not only ventured through the gates, they artistically expressed the enchantments of the garden.

Dr. Lu (Harvard) and Dr. Steinhardt (Princeton) state that Islamic designers had mastered techniques ‘to construct nearly perfect quasicrystalline Penrose patterns, five centuries before their discovery in the West.’
