**Symmetry **is a spatial relation which **orders the body** of a figure into equal parts, but opposed.

Let’s think about symmetric things…

There are two different types of symmetry:

**Axial Symmetry**appears when the elements of a figure are located at the**same distance**from an**axis of symmetry**, but in the**opposite sides**.

**Radial Symmetry**appears when two points are located in the**same straight line**and at the**same distance**from the point called**centre of symmetry**.

**Expressivity in symmetry**

In order to moderate the geometry of symmetry in compositions, it is often played with **variations** of **colour**, **shape**, **size** and **situation** to produce a sense of order and visual balance.
