New Islamic-style Trellis-likeTile!

I was gazing at my RL painting of the E8 Polytope and I perceived an octagon and a unicursal octagram embedded in the center:

That got me thinking.  Could that shape be used to tile space?

That thought inspired me to try to build a tiled space using prims and this is the result:

Islamic-style Trellice-like Tile made from prims.

This is about 1,000 prims and can conceivably be used for wall dividers or latticeworks in Second Life and other Virtual Worlds.

Scope Cleaver and company check out the new tiling.

What else will I find in the E8?
