mi^2 (x 80!)

Laura Harms' challenge #80 is "Mi2! Mi2!". Mi2 is a great tangle developed by Mimi Lempart, CZT.

Here is Maria's contribution . . .


. . . and her comments.
I love when something unexpected happens in life. I assume that is why mi2 "sparkles" so much as a tangle for me. With very little effort, the lines and shapes create an impossible Escher-like situation. There's no way that one layer—whether metal, glass or paper—can recreate what these series of simple strokes eloquently evoke.  (But what a fun sculpting or 3D printing exploration this could be!)

Life is a Zentangle! I love and embrace it as it is.

When I first saw the name Mi2 and this pattern I thought of mission impossible, which is actually quite funny but at the same time ties in with the theme of anything is possible one stroke at a time. I just recently discovered zentangle. I'm impressed by everything I've seen so far. Thank you for sharing this.
