As usual, I couldn't resist and immediately started to play with Noom and some Echo Lines to see if I could make it more 3-dimensional. This is the perfect example of how Echo Lines can GREATLY transform a tangle.

Although I'm not particularly crazy about the coloring, I really like how the Noom portion and how it got transformed into an organic mass of chains with the Echo Lines.
