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 1^{st} construction.
