A set of tangent spheres and ellipsoids is a stable structure, where each sphere touches its neighbors, being as intimately close to each other as possible. Still inner contact is prohibited in the fragile structure, which would be destroyed as pollen on butterfly’s wings. In contrast, arcs in background representing leaves and flowers penetrate each other with ease, multiplying and prospering in intersections and unifications.
