This pattern derives from cuts of common wild plants. It represents a map of cell geometrical features of the inner plant tissues. The color gradient and dot size are proportional, respectively, to the incline of cell anisotropy and area. Beyond an aesthetic design, it shows the complex hidden beauty of plants and helps to focus our attention on the present."
