Cheese Grater Topography

Hedgehog_Cheese_Grater11

First, this is the coolest cheese grater I’ve ever seen.  Second, the bumps on the cheese grater remind me of a certain glacial landform called a roche moutonee.  A roche moutonee is a bedrock hill with a smooth, gradual slope on one side and a steep cliff on the other side (cliffs face south/southeast in Maine because the ice sheet was moving from northwest to southeast).   I only just saw the LIDAR image for the Sebago Lake area in Maine (look for the cheese grater).
