[Puzzle] Kendra's Mystery Decoration
what the heck is it

I started this puzzle section for this crazy image. I worked on it all day and I think this is close to what it should look like as a flat image.

Note: The arrows point to the other square the word would also be contained in.

Ok, I built that thing. I don't have a camera here, so no pictures, but what you get are three "rings" of text (it's not sure where one has to start reading):

"ACKAN DI NY TRA KAN"
"CUR IYK UNJ GNAR SHAN"
"RAU ION MEDKI EN LACILK"

First one could be "ACKAN of the visitors", also, "EN" is "and".


Let's hope Kendra's doesn't do this often.

edit: to fix image (see what taking a break does.)
edit 2: I think it is finally fixed like it should be.

You're right, it's "GNAR". But I'm pretty sure it's "IYK" (not IKY). Also, it might be "UNJ" (and yes, it's definitely not "UNF", the F looks different).

The words form three completely filled circles, so that's my guess how they were meant to be read. Within each circle, the are orientated so that the word in the top position has the correct upright orientation.

Thanks fragment, with your help I managed to fix the image above. I'm not sure why I wrote iky instead of iyk. I fixed the image to reflect what you said about the circles. I also fixed your quote so that everything agrees.

Edit: here is a good pattern for anyone who would like to make this thing. I would but I am out of ink. So maybe later.
