…the Fusion… and finished version.

I was asked to do a bigger render of this piece: [link]
And I decided to go for the exact size of Vermeers original, which is 9 5/8 x 8 1/4 in. (24.5 x 21 cm.) or 2480 x 2894 pixels @ 300 dpi.
It is not just a bigger render, I have changed the light so it is from the same angle as the light in Vermeer:s original.

This time I also decided to fuse my fractal version with the original, I did not move the original image at all, and the shapes fits so well I almost get scared… Hope you like it.

Text from the 'study': Second image in my series (?) of fractal versions of classical masterpieces, this time "The Lacemaker" by Vermeer (/Dalí).

To make a long story short, Salvador Dalí was fascinated by the connection between "The Lacemaker" by Vermeer [link] and the horns of the Rhinoceros. [link] [link]
This lead me to do a comment to LMarkoya that "The Lacemaker" probably where hiding somewhere in the Rhinoceros fractal I was working on at the moment: [link]
And a couple of days ago I found her (not in that fractal though), in this image she is mysteriously merged with the rhino and the furniture! I feel a quantum-physical state in these 3D fractals, the images doesn't exist until you start looking for them.

Fractal part rendered with Mandelbulb 3D. Vermeers original masterpiece superimposed to the fractal in Photoshop..

See it perfectly framed here:

Haha, Johan, I meant "marriage" of course ! Deezes, my keyboard make terrible mistakes :-)

:) I read it as marriage - though 'mirage' is also appropriate I think... ;)
