Daily Fractal No. 251   2 comments



This fractal has been known for about 30 years but not whether it has a proper name, since it resembles an angle fish the name Mandelfish seems appropriate. Available as a print, poster or card from the shop, Redbubble and Artflakes.

  1. Commonly called a Celtic Mandelbrot.often just Celtic. I have no idea how that name came to be. Google Celtic Mandelbrot and my plugin for Fractal Extreme is what shows first.

    • If I had used fractal software other than my own more extensively I would have discovered the common name for this fractal. I think Mandelfish is a much better name. In my software this fractal isn’t a named formula as it is produced using the standard Mandelbrot formula with transforms defined, this is also the case for Buffalo, Burning Ship, Tricorn (or Mandelbar) etc.
