The Faberge Fractals are spectacular to look at. Full of intricate details, they are named after the famous Fabergé eggs, jeweled creations that were made by the Russian House of Fabergé between 1885 to 1917. But in place of the delicate shells of eggs, the Faberge Fractals appear laser cut out of wood.

Created by Scotland-based laser physicist-turned-artist and web developer Tom Beddard, who is also known as subBlue, the Faberge Fractals are a result of a formulaic method that digitally renders the three-dimensional models. He reveals, "The fascinating aspect is where combinations of parameters can combine to create structural 'resonances' of extraordinary detail and beauty—sometimes naturally organic and other times perfectly geometric. But then like a chaotic system it can completely disappear with the smallest perturbation." Stats for Ornate Geometric Sculptures Trending: Older & Warm
