Nature provides a myriad of artistic inspirations. In this example, satellite images of the massive Hurricane Ivan begged to be rendered. Unlike the crop circle examples, this rendering does not focus on closely or exactly duplicating the subject. Instead it seeks to use symmetrically placed identical shapes to create a symbolism of the subject.

The terms "hurricane" and "typhoon" are regionally specific names for a strong "tropical cyclone". A tropical cyclone is the generic term for a non-frontal synoptic scale low-pressure system over tropical or sub-tropical waters with organized convection (i.e. thunderstorm activity) and definite cyclonic surface wind circulation. Tropical cyclones with maximum sustained surface winds of less than 17 m/s (34 kt, 39 mph) are called "tropical depressions" (This is not to be confused with the condition mid-latitude people get during a long, cold and grey winter wishing they could be closer to the equator. Once the tropical cyclone reaches winds of at least 17 m/s (34 kt, 39 mph) they are typically called a "tropical storm" and assigned a name. If winds reach 33 m/s (64 kt, 74 mph), then they are called: "Hurricane" (the North Atlantic Ocean, the Northeast Pacific Ocean east of the dateline, or the South Pacific Ocean east of 160E)   "Typhoon" (the Northwest Pacific Ocean west of the dateline) "Severe tropical cyclone" (the Southwest Pacific Ocean west of 160E or Southeast Indian Ocean east of 90E) "Severe cyclonic storm" (the North Indian Ocean) "Tropical cyclone" (the Southwest Indian Ocean)
