I teach a class about math and art. (I rely heavily on the works of MC Escher.)
It would be fun if I could incorporate some examples of geometry in Egyptian art.

All I have so far is the following:
1. Border patterns and wallpaper patterns.
2. The golden ratio and golden spiral for the piramids of Giza
3. A fractal pattern on a gold inlay collar (17th dynasty I think)

Anyone know of other examples?

You should look into the 42 books of Thoth. The books outline matrices of creation, and it incorporates the Egyptian neters. It is a text on the sacred geometry of Egypt.

Forgot to mention the 42 Books of Thoth were compiled by artist and egyptologist Donald Beaman.

Can you show me an example of the fractal collar of the gold inlay from the 17th dynasty or where you have seen it?
