Lathed and sculptured by the mathematical GODS
Impossible for us to see or hold before the key to their world was handed over to us by the collaboration of Daniel White, Paul Nylander, Thomas Löwe, Jesse, Luca and many others at fractalforums.com.
For you who don't know about the quest for this particular Holy Grail, check out the original thread at fractalforums: http://www.fractalforums.com/3d-fractal-generation/true-3d-mandlebrot-type-fractal/
No need to search any more, It is now here, in my trembling hand! ;)
It is possible to drink from it (but the material is "not foodsafe" according to Shapeways)
A funny fractal detail is that the "bowl" contains a copy of the whole Grail, and that copy contains a copy…
This version is very expensive because there are lots of invisible details inside the "globes", if there are interest I could do a cheaper version where I have booled it out = less material to print.
