This attractor has a similarity dimension of 2. It has been reverse engineered from a tiling attributed to Benoit Mandelbort in Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics
The ratio of areas is 3:1.
A single size of the Koch snowflake does not tile the plane, but the plane may be tiled with a unit consisting of 1 larger copy and 2 smaller copies.
An alternative construction for the Koch Snowflake uses 7 large and 6 small copies. This construction allows fractals to be derived from the Koch Snowflake, in addition to those that can derived from the 1st construction.
