For the last several decades the Escher-like symmetry patterns have occupied wide area in the creative art. Strong geometrical basis, absence background, modulity, regularity, using more and more new mathematical ideas, etc., have opened new aesthetic and applied avenues for this style. I would like to emphasize one more peculiarity them, namely the 3D illusions of 2D regular tessellations.
