Sometime back in 2007 two members of the Fractal Forums, Daniel White and Paul Nylander, proposed a method to generate 3D shapes which resemble fractals. Although these shapes are not fractals in the mathematical sense, they look like ones, and are commonly referred to as "fractals" in the art community. A new name was coined for the new 3D fractals: "Mandelbulb".
Mandelbulbs look fascinating even when rendered in 2D. But when I first saw their pictures, it occurred to me that they will look even more magnificent in 3D. With this in mind I developed a workflow which renders a Mandelbulb to a 3D lenticular picture, using the program Mandelbulb3D created by Jesse. In such pictures one can see the Mandelbulbs in their full glory.

To me this picture symbolizes the satisfaction and pleasure accompanying a spiritual illumination or a mental breakthrough. It displays a burst of fluid illuminated with vivid colors. The upward direction of the eruption symbolizes progress and new energy.
