# UPDATE_ this shape contains an error -_

**UPDATE**: this shape contains an error - see comments below, and a later post where I corrected it.

A realization of the Klein Quartic, made from 24 heptagons. The heptagons come in two different shapes: the 12 on the outside are different to the 12 on the inside.

Working on this because I'm trying to visualize how this corresponds to the {7,3} tiling of the hyperbolic plane.
