Weird fractal.... Hard to name, yet very easy..... I couldn't help but think of the whole purgatory thing again, after mentioned a river in heaven to wash away sins. But I decided to stay a bit more vague. In general water restores things. After a large flood new fertile soilis deposited on the flood plain, allowing the vegetation to become even more lush. Also it washes away other things like pollution. However the same flood that brings life, also takes it away with all the damage it does to people's livelihoods. The Egyptians if I recall acknowledged the value of the flooding of the Nile. I suppose it is no mystery why in the story of Noah the world was purified by a flood. Water is just great. Sorry for all the religious references.... I'm not quite sure why I'm thinking about it...
This fractal is another splits elliptical fractal.... I have to admit... As beautiful as I think they are I would die to see some more variety.... It feel like I see the basic shapes and it's just the colour scheme that is different between them. That's not completely true... But I just hold them to higher quality standards than other types of fractals.
If the blue is not a river, then I say it is light from a super nova, filling the vaccum of space!
In the Brazillian state of Minas Gerais is a deposit of rock that contains the mineral brazilianite. It's yellow green coloured...l which is why I decided to name this image after the region it is from. It is a phosphate mineral, which isn't that common a type, so it's nice to remember. The piece in my collection isn't that nice, but as I said, it's a great colour.
Brazil is a great county though... I'm sure they has much more to like than a lowly mineral named after them.
I've been doing a bit of green recently..... But it is a great colour.
It's a mixed meaning. On one hand it's a bright sunflower with hundreds of petals. I love sunflowers, but I havn't seen any growing well in the climate here, so I only have seen them a handful of times. B
But it also looks a lot like the logo for BP (British Petroleum). Thankfully BP happens to also have BP Solar which essentially has the same logo.
Solar energy is great stuff since it takes works just by lying in the sun. The downside is how environmentally unfriendly it is to produce the aluminum for the frames and the large silicon crystals for the active components.

I didn't use the popular 3D tile ball method to make this one; actually, I created it from scratch, using a Spherical gasket. The orb in the middle was created by using two transforms with z-translate. It took a long time, but it was fun to make.
The title speaks for itself, really: I was aiming to create something that looked like a sub-atomic particle.
