Glass Block Abstract

There's a large bay window in the public library composed of glass blocks. Over the years a few of the textured blocks have broken, replaced with translucent ones. The newer blocks act like crude lenses, forming all sorts of abstract patterns, depending upon the changing lighting conditions and subject matter outside.

If you're puzzling out what formed this image, it appears that an orange car was parked near the library, caught in the light rays of the glass block lens. Those “eyes” are its wheels.

To me it looks like a big alien bug hit a spaceship windshield.
