Note:
The really amazing thing for me, is the fact that it is possible to paint such wonderful, gorgeous, terrific and fascinating pictures with a mathematical formula.

Even more amazing is the fact that you can find such a design of structures in nature: http://www.google.at/m/search?site=images&gl=at&source=mog&q=fraktale+in+der+natur&ei=Qk1RTugHyb6OB9-s9dgC&ved=0CCYQ1QIoAA.
