      It's puzzling that Escher called this design "Stars." It has a lot of geometric shapes floating in space, but none is actually star-shaped. (Actually, stars are not star-shaped!) I call this carving "Two Chameleons."

        Being into stars with a telescope - they are balls. But Star Fish are 3-30 some odd legs. Then there is the 4, 5 pointed and 6 pointed. Some 8 and 10 and 12 pointed badges from 5-12. Pointy things I think was in his mind - the various shapes create lots of points and fast corners. Traditional star shapes come from eyes that have astigmatism in an eye. Lots of them in life.
