It is generally accepted that hues can be arranged so as to make a circle. The circular representation of hue has been supported by multidimensional scaling, which allows for the representation of a set of colored papers as a configuration in a Euclidean space where the distances between the papers correspond to the perceptual dissimilarities between them. In particular, when papers of various hues are evenly illuminated, they are arranged in a one-dimensional circular configuration. However, under variegated illumination we show that the same papers in fact make a two-dimensional configuration that resembles a torus.
