They look like gold jewelry - King Tut style!
Anne: I never tire of their mathematical shapes smile

another cool set of images

i especially like the details of the white background version
Anne: I agree - the detail seems clearer with the lighter background - I was playing around with the lighting.

These are wonderful Anne, the example on the right looks straight out of an expensive gallery to me..
Anne: I think their mathematical forms are beautiful and never tire of seeing slides featuring them.

I know I keep using the word "exquisite" for a lot of your pictures, but it is the only one that fits
Anne: You are so kind Lisl, thank you.
Apart from the excellent close-ups I like the two alternative versions.
Anne: I find it interesting to see how two different lighting techniques can have make such a difference to the same subject.
One made with x's, one with dashes, both honeycombed. Intriguing.
Anne: I love their mathematical forms Mary.

i quite like the black and yellow juxtaposition, Anne.
Anne: Thank you Ayush - it's amazing what a difference the portion of the lighting makes.
I thought as Elizabeth did, jewellery. Fascinating Anne.
Anne: Little glass houses
