Ah, I see. Sometimes an observer does not comprehend the original 
intention of an artist at once. I think that is the reason why 
catalogues of major art exhibitions are that think (I have two 
catalogues of the documenta 8 and 9 gathering dust at my book shelf 
since a lot of years). But I remember my first rendering. It was a 
chrome sphere over checkered ground (green and white IIRC). An example 
scene shipped with my Amiga 500 some years ago.

Best regards,
