The Diamond 16 Puzzle

Change the pair of patterns at right to any of the pairs at left. (The original pair is at top left.)

To change the patterns, click on a row, then click on the row you want to move it to. Do the same for other rows, columns, or quadrants.

You can make 322,560 pairs of patterns. Each pair pictures a different symmetry of the underlying 16-point space.
