Concentric Waves Over The Surface Of A Cube

As part of a fascination with concentric wave patterns (such that one might see in tossing a pebble into a lake) I've thought of synthesizing that over the surfaces of a cube. This is the first application. I'm already starting to modulate amplitudes or frequencies until I get something that I am visually pleased with. Rather than get elaborate this time in creating the curved surfaces with the "follow" tool I simply connected the crests and the troughs on a linear-decreasing function.

If pressed to answer about an influence in this I might answer, fingerprint whorls, curb-stones at Newgrange, Buddhist rake patterns in Japanese gardens, simple meditation over waves themselves.
