Patterns have a strong use of repetition and it gives art a sense of unity and consistency. Patterns appear everywhere. They appear in nature on the skin of animals like zebras and cheetahs or on the bark of a tree. They also appear in architecture and many other places as well. This particular pattern gives an optical illusion. As you stare at it, the picture makes you feel as though you're getting sucked into the art.
