"A tessellation is created when a shape is repeated over and over again covering a plane without any gaps or overlaps."
"To form into a mosaic pattern, as by using small squares of stone or glass." [From Latin tessellātus, of small square stones, from tessella, small cube, diminutive of tessera, a square; see tessera. Dictionary.com]
"A collection of plane figures that fills the plane with no overlaps and no gaps." "Designs featuring animals, birds, etc, which can fill the page, without over-lapping, to form a pattern."
