    Amazing piece, David! It looks like it could be on Escher V that Phoxford is always writing about. That must be a really neat place to visit.

  • Thanks, Peggi! I’m not sure quite where this is…I see the neck and body of an acoustic guitar toward the top center, and lots of other shapes here and there in the smoke, but you know what they say:

    I definitely see the guitar neck, but it could be a rampart leading to an unseen building. The elements at the top and sides look like waterfalls cascading down and creating the wonderful central design. Really cool looking!

  • Thanks! I’ve got a more detailed closeup of the cascade part yet to post; its my favorite part, too :o)
