Border pattern, using a square

Posted on


Just looking at the possible use of a square to set out a triple strand guilloche Roman mosaic border pattern. The marks on there are the same as on a staff. On the slope you have marks every 5 1/2 tesserae, along the bottom the marks are the distance between the centre tesserae on a horizontal line. 
You can see how both sets line up correctly when the square is in place.
