She was especially proud of this photo and she knew I would love it. I framed it and it hangs in my studio. The architecture is so unique and eye-catching that I thought we'd "do" something with it.
This image had too much potential (and wonderful history) not to use it. I did not see it as a tangle per se, but as an exploration of wrapping tangles, border-like, over uneven surfaces. You will notice some shared tangle-DNA with static, particularly in its shading.
In this exercise, you start with random parallel lines indicating inner and outer folds or curves, add in the banding (in wide aura style, resonant with static). Then, enhance those bands (or not) with tangles you already know and love.
That banding, much like the triangles in tripoli, function string-like to create further sections within which to tangle.
You can tell I had way too much fun with this. Can you imagine the possibilities???
I am sure there are near countless other "tangle within tangle" possibilities, such as quandary, florz, cadent, hollibaugh, etc. that further come to life as the strokes of the primary tangle function as strings to create secondary sections to tangle.
Any ideas to add to this?

My favorite "tangle within a tangle" is shattuck inside wide sections of hollibaugh.
Also, notice in Nancy's photograph to the right of that main pillar how that pattern looks like a two dimensional knightsbridge. However, as you look further down, your realize it is actually a three dimensional "wrapping" of alternating black and white bands across static-like hills and valleys.
