These works are based on special members of a series of singular algebraic varieties and Calabi-Yau threefolds defined over the rationals obtained recently ("Singular and Calabi-Yau varieties linked with billiard trajectories and diffusion operators". Annali di Matematica Pura ed Applicata. Vol.197, 1613-1629 (2018),

In this case the basic varieties are a singular surface and a Calabi-Yau threefold. The image is obtained after an analysis of some of their shadows or projections.
