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. - Feb 5th 2011, 09:50 PMdwsmith

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.) - Feb 6th 2011, 07:33 AMUnknown008

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 (Thinking) - Feb 6th 2011, 09:15 AMbenice

Possibly a man and a woman?

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... - Feb 8th 2011, 06:43 PMbenice
