My first image with photons.

I used radiosity too.

The shapes are made with intersections of some tori.
(Except from the ground plane and the sky sphere.)

Beautiful.  Being a metalworker, I love the interaction with metal and
glass.

A beautiful little object...a nice illustration of the relation between 
mobius strips and torii as well.

If I saw this sitting in a shop I would have to buy it!  Amazing!   :)

To me words can't describe this image and do it justice... :)

The white bands in that image. A Mobius strip is a ribbon loop with a 
half twist, giving it one side.

If you have spare time, could you post the same image without photons and
with caustics? Just curious :)
