Image contest update

In the last post I announced a contest to produce an image for the conformal map movie which is very close to being finished now. The contest didn’t attract any entries, which is understandable considering how busy a student’s life these days is.  So … I ended up producing a solution myself:

Sharp-eyed readers will note that two copies of the image go together to cover the rectangle once.  Furthermore, there is a close connection between the letter ‘A’ and the new texture image.  Can you figure out what it is? Hint: make a list of the objects which appear in the image. There should be at least 11 different reasons for this connection. Can you find them all?
