Mind = blown. Is it one continuous mesh, or is there a ton of individual strands?

There are 6 loops, all the same, but each is rotated a bit, relative to its adjacent neighbor.

Each loop circles the torus 5 times, before returning to its starting location.

So, 6 x 5 looks like 30 "strands"

I hope you don't mind I have featured this image in my journal's "Shameless Plugs"

Not at all, Terry -- Thanks for the plug. :handshake:

I'm honored to be included in your journal, which is one of my favorites, and often generates a smile or out-loud laugh.

I like this, I may have to do something like it in a piece but make it like an Alex Gray image. Wonder how it would look if you could weave the spirals on the way up?

Perhaps, with crossing spirals based on consecutive numbers from the Fibonacci series....

Spiral Symmetry Transformation

(Alex Gray employed the Fibonacci/phyllotaxis spiral concept, in several works.)

I kinda like that cover to Bodnar's book in the one link. I've had some ideas before using the golden ratio and optical illusions; mathematical equations and art. I like the patterns and sequences, etc. Just have to take the time to do some intricate workings and translate it into the etchings. ty

Hah!

I was hoping no one would notice. That was a reference point that I used for keeping subsequent frames properly aligned. I forgot to disable it.

Now, I've go to go back & edit the image, to remove it. :surrender:
