I am traveling extensively for my Sooper Sekrit Project™, and staying in one interchangeable hotel after another. But one recent hotel was a bit special: while perambulating to my room down an outside corridor, I spotted this on the floor:

As it happens, the town I am in -- forgive me for not revealing the location! -- is very religious, and in a way that shapes like this would easily be revered as some sort of icon of God's presence. The resemblance to an angel is obvious.

I suppose angels have to breathe, too, so this could be interpreted as a divine pulmonary system, but somehow I doubt it.

What does it look like to you?
