See this vegetable, the Romanesco Broccoli. Think of Mandelbulber (which has been added to nekoware since this thread was started 2+ years ago)

Quote:
Misleadingly named a "broccoli," this veggie is actually a curious-looking, bright-green cauliflower studded with conical shapes (fun fact: the formations resemble a natural fractal). It keeps its green color when cooked (try roasting it), and can be prepared the same way as regular white cauliflower. The texture is relatively tender, with a milder and sweeter flavor than the white version. Bonus: It's bursting with vitamin C, fiber, and carotenoids.

I see Fibonacci series actually. Lots of it.

Not quite as impressive, but made this one or two years ago through Shapeways, coincidentally around the time the good man himself went to visit the great fractals in the sky. Got the idea from a 90s PC demo, Panic, by Future Crew, which features a scene with a volcano-esque 3D mandelbrot.
I remember wanting to eventually make a colored version (it's the reason I chose this material, which they can't print in a more detailed manner), but it was too difficult for me to get Blender to do what I wanted. Also, it was quite expensive to make this model, that's why it's pretty low in the Y-direction. The major cause for the high price had to do with materials: I had to manually hollow it, and this was before Blender 2.6 stabilised, so no automatic wall-thickening algorithms. And I suck at it, so it's a lot - far too much - of solid inside ;)

What is the material, looks like some sort of foam.. styrene?

It's made of this stuff: http://www.shapeways.com/materials/fullcolor, feels quite like sandstone.
