Max Brückner, from his book Vielecke und Vielfläche, 1900. Leipzig, Germany. Via Bulatov.

Brückner extended the stellation theory beyond regular forms, and identified ten stellations of the icosahedron, including the complete stellation. wiki

Nautilus Spiral - 
I think it is fair to say I have been drawn to and fascinated by the appearance of spirals, their balance, strength, and beauty, and been drawn to them ever since I was a very young child.  
"The Fibonacci numbers are Nature’s numbering system. They appear everywhere in Nature, from the leaf arrangement in plants, to the pattern of the florets of a flower, the bracts of a pinecone, or the scales of a pineapple. The Fibonacci numbers are therefore applicable to the growth of every living thing, including a single cell, a grain of wheat, a hive of bees, and even all of mankind.” — Stan Grist

The Buddhabrot is a special rendering of the Mandelbrot set, which resembles, to some extent, certain depictions of the Buddha. Mathematically, the set consists of the set of points c in the complex number plane for which the iteratively defined sequence
with z0 = 0 does not tend to infinity.
