The first thing that came to my mind had to do with how symmetry falls under “balance” and here is the outline I used when teaching elementary art (back in the day – ha)
Virginia Standard of Learning 3.12 – Technique and Application
- Color—intermediate, warm, cool.
- Space—positive, negative.
- Balance—symmetry, asymmetry, radial. ((Asymmetrical balance is also called informal balance and refers to when one or more dissimilar elements are balancing on each side of a given point))

This is Oliver and he is five weeks old.
Oliver reminded me of the “Advice from a Cat” poster I saw:

Two closing photos to show symmetry in DECOR:
