Artist's Description

*Upon his belly, young boy lies
Across lawn lush and green
He marvels at the life he spies
That usually goes unseen

Each blade of grass is now a tree
Each pebble now a hill
This micro world that he does see
Like forests of Brazil

And creatures scurry to and fro
With scary compound eyes
Antennae tell them where to go
To find their food supplies

They tire not upon their quest
For they have many legs
They travel quite far from their nest
Leave workers with their eggs

Between the blades of grass this world
Young man now knows about
A magic kingdom he’s unfurled
Which grows with each new sprout*

This fractal artwork was inspired by a memory of when I was very young and would lie prone on the grass marveling at the intricate web of life living amongst the blades. It was like a secret that I knew that the ‘big’ people did not know, this entire world hidden right beneath our feet. It’s sad how we tend to take the magic of the world for granted as we get older. Hopefully, this artwork will help you to recapture some of that magic we all experienced as children about the world we live in.

The original is 7200 × 10800 pixels at 300 pixels per inch. The fractal was created in Ultra Fractal 5 using my own gradient and parameters. I have included a few detail cutaways below so you can see the detail. The detail cutaways are at 50% of the original size of the artwork.
