What if this is connected:

>>> D
array([[1, 2, 3],
[4, 5, 6],
[6, 7, 8]])
>>> E
array([[6, 7, 8],
[0, 0, 0],
[0, 0, 0]])

-->

>>> D
array([[1, 2, 3],
[4, 5, 6],
[6, 7, 8]])
>>> E
array([[6, 7, 8],
[0, 0, 0],
[0, 0, 0]])
>>> numpy.rot90( D )
array([[3, 6, 8],
[2, 5, 7],
[1, 4, 6]])
-->
>>> E
array([[1, 4, 6],
[0, 0, 0],
[0, 0, 0]])
