What would you get if your crossed the Faberge eggs, which were made in Russia during the 19th and 20th century, with modern digitally rendered fractals? The answer is these stunning Faberge Fractals.

These stunning pieces of art have been created by Tom Beddard, a former laser physicist, who designed them in order to celebrate just how intricate and beautiful fractals really are.

Fractals are a natural thing of beauty, a mathematical concept as fractals are never ending patterns. The patterns can be seen in the fractals at all scales and are called self-similar patterns. They were originally based on just mathematics, however today we can see their applications used in chemistry, physics, engineering, transport physics and geological sciences.

Beddard, who is known better by the name of SubBlue, worked at the University of St Andrews in Scotland, has been producing these weirdly beautiful pieces of art based on fractals, which he calls Faberge Fractals. This is in relation to the Faberge Eggs made during the 19th and 20th centuries in Russia.

His creations are stunning and they come with such incredible detail that the eye sees something new each time you look at the artwork. There are lines and curves that snake across the different sides of the object, with the pattern repeating over and over. The physicist used a formulaic method when it came to creating the three dimensional models, which have been rendered digitally.

In Beddard`s own words, "The 3D fractals are generated by iterative formulas whereby the output of one iteration forms the input for the next. The formulas effectively fold, scale, rotate or flip space. They are truly fractal in the fact that more and more detail can be revealed the closer to the surface you travel. 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."
