Well, it should have been happen someday: to the collection of Python 
programs for conversion of bitmap into POVRay solid objects mosaic two 
more programs (p3zaika.py and p6zaika.py) were added, converting bitmap 
into a pack of triangle prisms or hexagonal prisms, correspondingly 
(sample output of p6zaika attached).

All programs reside at
and may be used, modified and tortured for free.

So, currently spheres, cubes, and two sorts of prisms are included as 
mosaic primitives, and all regular plane partitions (3/6, 4/4 and 6/3) 
covered. Considering the fact that POV output of these is as flexible as 
I could imagine, so you may edit objects properties or even replace 
objects globally, there is a vast opportunity to produce mosaic-looking 
posters, greetings cards, ads, and, all in all, molest humans 
graphically. Enjoy.

Meanwhile, while POV primitives seem to be exhaused (more or less), I 
may probably continue with something more complex. Beware.
