Prolate Spheroids - Egg Shapes

After developing another shape I wanted from a simple egg-shape formula I nested a smaller version inside another and created pyramid studs across the surface by connecting intersection from one to the other.

Very impressive Andrew!

Thank you! At this point the endurance required to finish the detail in something like this is all in how long I can sit down.

At one time a decade ago I worked on a larger pineapple that was one of the ornamental pier caps in Haddonstone's line here in Pueblo. This does not quite capture the organic quality of the geometry, or exponential growth of something like a pinecone, but I can work with it.
