This image appeared as a double-page spread in a special issue of KYOTO JOURNAL in 1994, which commemorated the 1200th anniversary of the founding of the city of Kyoto, Japan in 794AD. The timespan reprensented here is from 500AD at the base, to 2012 at the top. Unlike circularly-lathed Timewave renderings, this is a square, or 4-sided lathe of the wave. This was done because of the remarkable similarity of this span of the wave to a Japanese pagoda when rendered in 3D with four sides. In the original magazine spread, the chronology of significant events in the history of Kyoto and Japan was listed alongside the "pagoda" with arrows pointing to the spots on the wave when each event occured. The present day on this rendition is very close to the peak at the top.
