Olympics' Inspiration

If you caught the opening ceremony of the Olympics, you've undoubtedly seen (and fell in love with!) the Birds Nest Stadium. What an incredible work of art! I admire the way it resembles the random-weave Asian baskets.

Well, it took nearly an entire day, but I finally figured out, or rather remembered, how to create the hexagonal design that serves as a base for the random weave baskets, then continued with my weaver to create this Bird's Nest inspired snake basket.
