More Pentagon motifs

This large motif was kindly sent in by Jaap Scherphuis.  It consists of 28 pentagons and can be tiled in two ways.


By omitting the module far right (highlighted in dark red) a slightly smaller motif emerges which can tile in a few ways.  One example shown below.


Here’s a few more by me…




The last one is interesting as I have implemented mirroring rather than rotation.  Also, by spinning this motif through 180° and combining with the original, tilings of an aperiodic nature can develop (example to follow).
