Lania by Anne Fugat - Beautiful! {looks like a "nautilus" seashell-the one which grows in a spiral, which has the "Golden Ratio" observable in many places and things in nature. (hint: read up on Pythagorean theorem, chaos theory, repeating digits, etc. Yes, I do mean MATH-lol) I love this as a piece of jewelry or as a possible painting!}

Fractal Geometry :: Fractals in Nature

Fractal Geometry ~ A fractal is defined as a "rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole," according to their "discoverer" Benoit Mendelbrot (Nov. 20, 1924 – Oct. 14, 2010). In plain English this means that something is "self-similar," or at least generally like a zoomed in/out iteration of itself.

** Fractal? I thought from what I've read that there are rules as to what makes up a fractal. I believe this meets those of having three same shapes of different or same size. It is confusing!
