Tessellated Pavement at Eaglehawk Neck, Tasmania
The coastline of the Tasman Peninsula is unlike any other in the world thanks to a rare erosion effect named after a Roman mosaic technique called tessellated pavement. There are two different patterns produced by the erosion: some of the rock pieces are formed into rounded bricks that resemble loaves of bread, while others develop depressions that collect saltwater between their raised borders, reflecting the sky like a window frame that stretches to the sea.
