    Smile [Funny Math Art] Guess what's inside?



    The surface in above image is a portion of the graph of
    some mathematical equation.

    Let's do some brainstorming:
    Can you guess what's inside the surface?

    Hint:
    Consider the intersection of a horizontal plane with
    the surface.

    Can we ask questions... like... is what the picture depicts a living thing? An object?

    Two living things!

    Hint:
    Consider the intersection of a horizontal plane with the surface.

    The intersection consists of a family of funny curves.
    (An example curve is shown below.)

    Cut off the upper surface above the horizontal plane
    to get a funny 3D image.


    (This curve is obtained from another surface and has nothing to do with the answer.)

    Oh well, I see only two possibilities, either those two protruding pairs of things are legs, or they are ears of some sort of cartoon pika or rabbit

    Your answer is great.

    Hint:
    Two living things. Three animal-like faces.

    Two men?

    One being a... how to call it now... someone with two heads 0_o

    otherwise, I don't think I'll guess how there can be three faces with only two organisms...

    The left(right) living thing and the middle face share an eye.
