Drawing - Pencil On Paper
This is a naturally occuring ripple of water drawn at the quantum level, frozen in time. When things are colder they vibrate slowly. Since this is a ripple 'drawn', it is like seeing a ripple of water not vibrating, or vibrating very slowly. Looking at water not vibrating is the same as looking at frozen water. This is 'why' a snowflake takes the shape it does. This is where the shape of a snowflake comes from. The universe (with infinite quantum vibrations), makes each individual snowflake new and unique. A little wind here, a little dust there and uncertainty vibrations are what make each snowflake unique. If you could watch a ripple of water in extreme slow motion (say a billion frames a second), this is the shape you would see. Like all of Jason Padgett's fractals, the original was hand drawn using only a pencil, protractor, ruler and compass. He discovered the technique for hand drawing fractals and is currently the only person worldwide that can hand draw fractals of anything.
