This sculpture is based on the first five generations of a fractal curve. The starting point is a circle, and the first iteration produces a four-armed form. With each iteration, the number of arms essentially quadruples. This fractal possesses mirror symmetry as well as four-fold rotational symmetry. The sculpture measures 14" in both width and height.
