Thanks Brent and Alef smiley
It's true that it looks better on the thumbnail, but even better for real wink
Can you spot it in this photo?

Wow great, +6. But probably too small for your camera, coz in thumbnail it looks even better.

Bon appétit J, but not sure that sandstone is very digestible, not mentioning what it can do to your teeth if you bite too hard cheesy

BTW here is the inside of the beast, it's definitely one of the most fascinating 3D prints I've made. I said elsewhere that it was kind of my "Holy Grail" :
- "Spheres on spheres" type of fractal
- Spikes all over the place
- Looking similar to the Quasi-Fuchsian that was one of the starting point for Daniel White's quest
- Fractal details in the 3 dimensions
- Looks like 2D M-Set in negative on some slices. (smaller and smaller circles upon a large arc of a circle)
- Hey, looks like a 3D Mandelbrot, don't you think? (well, no spirals, seahorses and so on, but let me dream on!)
