## Danzer's 7-fold original

### Info

A tiling based on 7-fold (resp. 14-fold) symmetry [ND96].
The inflation factor is `$1+{\sin(\frac{2\pi}{7})}/{\sin(\frac{\pi}{7})}$`

.
The three different edge lengths are proportional to
`$\sin(\frac{\pi}{7})$`

, `$\sin(\frac{2\pi}{7})$`

,
`$\sin(\frac{3\pi}{7})$`

.
On a first glance, there seems to exist a centre of perfect 14-fold symmetry:
a 14-tipped star in the upper right corner.
But in fact it is only 2-fold symmetric.
The symmetry is broken by the right- and left-handedness of the tiles.
On rings around the 14-tipped star, this manifests in tiles pointing clockwise or counterclockwise, thus breaking the symmetry.

This is one of the rare cases that a substitution has local matching rules without decoration.
In fact, the list of all different vertex stars defines the matching rule.
