*Many* thanks to you and to Carla for these two posts. All manner of wonderful things, enough to think about for days and days. One association to suggest: in addition to Tibetan sand mandalas, the forms here recall the geometer's sand table, the abax, which you've discussed in connection with the abacus and counting, and which was also where straight edge and compass produced such angular forms as these--like crystal faces, like Iznik tesselations. The final embrace of disorder is very touching.
