Rendered using Real 3D 1.4 (yes, the old one) on an Amiga 1200.

This one is another fractal-based image. The pyramid is based on the
Sierpinski gasket, first thought of by (you guessed) Waclaw Sierpinski, a
Polish mathematician, one of the first to explore the fractal theory.

There is an anecdote related to Mr. Sierpinski (don't know if it's true,
though). Apparently, Mr. and Ms. Sierpinski were going on vacation, and they
packed ten suitcases which they would carry with them. As they got ready,
they carried out the luggage, and Ms. Sierpinski asked her husband to count
them to make sure they carry all of them. He counted them, and shouted back
in the house that there were only nine suitcases there. His wife came out,
saying that all the luggage was out, and asked him to count again. And he
counted: 'Zero, one, two, three....' :-)

The object wasn't so hard to make as it might seem. With clever texturing
and macros, I was finished in no time. Then I spent three days trying to
prevent Real 3D from crashing, since the object is a bit complicated and it
must not cut into any other objects.
