We managed to get our hands on a set of ang baos specially made for Chinese New Year by Quirk.
The main flower-like motif, made up of eight (huat ah!) interlocking "Q"s, repeats itself to form a mind-boggling overall pattern. The designer seems to have realized this and she accentuated "Q"s at strategic areas to catch viewers' attention.
The continuity of this design has a mathematical feel and it reminds us of M.C. Escher's works. We found a website for those interested to know more about the mathematical aspects of Escher's works.
From all of us at Shop Oryx, we wish you all the best in the year of the Monkey!
