I decided that my (this) website needed something, a change of colour perhaps?
So I took inspiration from Gravitation (also known as Gravity) by the Dutch artist M. C. Escher completed in June 1952. It was first printed as a black-and-white lithograph and then coloured by hand in watercolour.
It depicts a nonconvex regular polyhedron known as the small stellated dodecahedron. Each facet of the figure has a trapezoidal doorway. Out of these doorways protrude the heads and legs of twelve turtles without shells, who are using the object as a common shell. The turtles are in six coloured pairs (red, orange, yellow, magenta, green and indigo) with each turtle directly opposite its counterpart.
I used the six colours in the print on my website, they seem quite relaxing. The hand written styled font for the headings is Rock Salt, imbeded from Google Fonts.
