This design has two levels of tiling. Shown here are the two macro tiles, the dart (above) and the kite (below). The pattern on the two tiles is transparent except for the universal quantifier itself (the upside-down A) and its triangular opening which is filled with black. The transparent area between the legs of the quantifiers reveals the micro level of tiling which is composed of the same two tiles but much smaller.
