This vortex is a swirling of two intersecting paths travelling along a chaotic surface of purple.  The background is a circle within a square within a second circle and square.  At three ends of the paths are three-dimensional relief triangles that extend beyond the natural boundaries of the square.  One of these falls into an oil painted clay rectangular container.  This clay container and the oil painted canvas at the top have been painted to mimic the patterns on the surface of the work.
