POV-Ray Feather shape.

I want to buid a kind of feather shape in POV-Ray. I do not want detail. I just want the basic shape, i.e. a curved rib with sides. There will be a lot of them in the picture so I need it efficient.

I've tried a double cone with a cylinder cutout but it doesnt look right.

I'm looking for a Sydney Opera House look, ore something similar.

Any POV Gurus here?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Actually, thinking about it, a blade of grass would be modifiable to achieve what I want.

I apologized for just giving links.  I am not a Pov-Ray guru, just have an interest in it.  I hope you find what you need or someone gives you a better reply!
