Thank you for the service you have provided. I wonder if there is a collection of artistic patterns created in Life and its generalisations? Most databases contain basic static and dynamic elements ("paints") but not the paintings. The aim is to have a realistic picture that is not reduced to many trivial still lives like ASCII-art, but rather represents a dynamic balance of larger building blocks.
In case it is of interest to anybody, here is a combination of a few strict still-life blocks and two simple oscillators:
