The human form, represented mathematically

(Or should that be: mathematics, represented as a human form?)

I’ve had this one bookmarked for an age, just waiting to have a place to post it! I was doing a Google image search for spirals, because I knew I wanted a spiral logo for this site (more on that later), when I came across this gorgeous piece of fractal art. I was immediately struck by the likeness it bore to an unborn human child — you can see shapes resembling the large head, the ribs, and tiny little legs. It’s too bad there’s no record of who created the artwork.

  1. Interesting. I wonder if that was what the artist intended?It is difficult to say with abstract art as much of it may be subconscious anyway!
