Modular hyperbolic tilings
A 12 colors tiling related to the usual subgroup of the modular group, highlighting the 3 cusps
Another colouring of the same picture; the union of the 2 biggest visible tiles form the standard fundamental domain

Klein's quartic. A very symmetric complex-curve (a.k.a. Riemann surface) in P2C.
Klein told us: glue this fundamental domain the right way (2 solutions, not so obvious), and you'll get a very symmetric Riemann surface.

An Archemedean polytope
The Runcinated 120-cell is a polytope. It is Archimedean in the sense that its organization at every vertex is the same, and all its chambers are Archimedean polyhedra too: regular dodecahedra, prisms with regular pentagonal base and square sides, prisms with equilateral triangular base and square sides, and regular tetrahedra. Here, these objects are respectively represented green, purple, yellow and orange. To represent the object, it is projected orthogonally to the three dimensionnal space and then rendered into a 2D image. We used LuxRender for a photorealistic look.

The outer shell is made of flattened cells and completely encloses the interior. We broke the shell to reveal cells below.
Same, without the outer shell. The cells are shrunk a little bit, to enhance visibility.
By accident, some groups of cells are neatly separated by planes.

Dodecahedral fundamental domain of the Seifert-Weber hyperbolic space
The set, sitting in the ball model of hyperbolic space.
The domain is the intersection of half-spaces bounded by hyperbolic planes

A Kleinian reflection group with a Sierpinski limit set
The group is generated by the reflections along the 4 blue circles. Black: limit set. Yellow tones: generated tesselation in the discreteness set.
They are arranged so as to have a tetrahedral symmetry and so that they intersect at angle a turn / 7
An index 24 subgroup has the following tetrahedral fundamental domain
