this is the top of a deer skull, close up on the bone plate fusion zones. it was a younger deer, so the fusions were no complete and fading. call it skull-techtonics ;-)

i believe the dendritic river-like features towards the edges are part lf the sinus/nasal drainage architecture, since they were associated with cavities, which i cropped off.

thanks so much for the comments.

this was almost a fool the viewer redux... this is the top of a deer skull, close up on the bone plate fusion zones. it was a younger deer, so the fusions were no complete and fading. call it skull-techtonics ;-)

i believe the dendritic river-like features towards the edges are part lf the sinus/nasal drainage architecture, since they were associated with cavities, which i cropped off.

and the slight discoloration and few hairs did their part to give it an earthly look.

Is this a skull?

It's an amazing abstract! I saw rivers, mountains and everything in between.

Easily the most fascinating puzzle piece in the challenge, and there's absolutely nothing in it to peg the scale. Wonderful work! Tell us what it is?

This is really cool, I want to think it is a photo from an airplane of some really cool land below but I'm pretty sure its just fooling me and its something much much smaller. Either way great lines and a great abstract. One of my top picks.

I like how I don't know what this is, and I don't know the scale of it, tiny or huge or in between.

Fascinating patterns. Skull sutures, perhaps?

This is totally unique, and that's what I love best about it. Should do well.
