Stop To Smell

I was looking at the "energy pattern" block I carved previously for the egg prints and the swirls started to look like roses to me.

Roses

That made me think about the smell of roses, which led me to do some research into how exactly it is that we smell anything at all. I found a few drawings of olfactory neurons, so I carved a new block this weekend (between packing boxes for my impending move) for a print about smelling the roses.

They look beautiful, but more like dandelions than roses to me. The new block that is.
