I learned from Wikipedia that is meant for Spain in its own language.

Have you ever think off how does the tiles is being arranged ?

The best way to arrange variously shaped tiles on a surface can lead to complicated mathematical problems A tessellation or tiling of the plane is a collection of plane figures that fills the plane with no overlaps and no gaps.

In Latin, tessella was a small cubical piece of clay, stone or glass used to make mosaics.

The word "tessella" means "small square" (from "tessera", square, which in its turn is from the Greek word for "four").
