New systems are inspired not only by math but also by available materials. Availability of mirrored acrylic and the fact that the number e has a palindrome near its beginning (2.718281828) led to the Palindrome series. This, the second made in the series, uses the sequence 1736371. Values of digits determine diameters of circles cut from three transparent acrylic sheets, stacked with spacers between them and aligned on centers, to indicate the 173. The value of 6 is spray painted with white on back of the base blue sheet. Mirror reflections of physical cutouts represent 371, the last three digits.
