COMMENTS

A 9-pillow is a generalized Aztec pillow. The 9-pillow of order n is a rotationally-symmetric region. It has a 2 X 2n central band of squares and then steps up from this band with steps of 9 horizontal squares to every 1 vertical square and steps down with steps of 1 horizontal square to every 1 vertical square.
