Pindo can be considered a tangleation, because it is based on one of the most common patterns in nature. I came up with it while studying the trunk of a palm tree. But rows of a repeated shape are found everywhere. In the case of Pindo, the shape is a triangular wedge, A row of large wedges are laid down, then the wedge is repeated three times in a smaller size. [ www.flickr.com/photos/aceo/5399460298/]
You could easily vary the pattern by using ovals or rectangular wedges instead of triangular shapes.
