Just a couple of images obtained with a few reflective objects.  JPG did 
some pretty bad blurring to the first one, but I don't know how to fix 
that without increasing the file size probably a bit too high.

This ideas for these came from the book I'm reading "Indra's Pearls" 
which so far I would recommend.  It gives a very accessible and pretty 
picture filled description of the symmetries of Kleinian groups.  Sounds 
dry, but they make some dang nice fractals and are very elegant 
mathematically as well.

Very very nice. Looks alien in a very biological sort of way.

Yeah I like it !

If you don't want to loose quality, use PNG instead of JPG !

Amazing images - any chance of sharing the source?  I'd love to fiddle
with it.

Thanks!  A slightly cleaned-up version of the source should be attached. 
  It's nice to have a scene which looks nice and is also ridiculously 
simple.  You'll want to render the scene (in particular reflections2) 
with very high AA settings of course.

Yeah, reminds me of the aliens from "The Abyss"...
