Third out of four fractals in my four kinds of love series. This one obviously represents Philia:
"Philia (φιλία, philía) means friendship or affectionate love in modern Greek. It is a dispassionate virtuous love, a concept developed by Aristotle. It includes loyalty to friends, family, and community, and requires virtue, equality and familiarity. [...]"

As the expression of friendship, I would like to dedicate this to a selected few people I have met at my university. I think they did more for me than they can imagine. It's thanks to them if I now know what friendship means in my life, that a lot of patience and respect are owed to others, and that they can both come plentifully in return. :aww:

E' possibile che ci sia un po' di Escher in questa serie di frattali?
Estremamente affascinanti! :love:
Reply
:iconheavenriver:
heavenriver Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Escher no, non l'ho usato; l'avevo provato ma alla fine ho preferito le combinazioni classiche con Mobius e Linear, a volte Spherical.
Grazie mille! :D

Acc! :ashamed:
Volevo dire Mobius, ma ho scritto Escher. Avevo riconosciuto le forme tipiche del Mobius.
