04-16 Composition 01

We're looking straight down onto a pyramid which has a spiralling water course flowing from it's centre. It's not an impossible solid, but quite an unlikely one. It employs several visual tricks to make it pop out of the canvas. Subtle shading of the four sides, shadows in the channel and increasing colour saturation towards the middle contribute to the illusion that the apex is closer than the edges. But what is it for?
