Symmetry and asymmetry...

This is the most beautiful thing I have seen today. Dissected flowers reassembled using digital art by Macoto Murayama, and there is more here in a WIRED article. Isn't it gorgeous. It reminds me of the xray photos of flowers by Steven Meyers.

“There’s an overwhelming charm in the detailed drawings of both plants and machines,” Murayama says. “Machines have an organic side, while plants have a mechanical side.”

Can you see the axle of a fly wheel in the flower?

Amazing, I like the see-through image. And I find the propeller blade, just as you.
