Nicholas V. K., a scientist and artist has decided to move his collection of Fractal Art onto their own smart contract and away from the shared lazy minting offered by OpenSea.
At the moment the collection has 13 ultra-rare artworks with names inspired by Ancient Greece some of which will surely ring a bell.
Pasithea: In Greek mythology, Pasithea (Ancient Greek: Πασιθέα means “relaxation”), or Pasithee, was one of the Charites (Graces), and the personification of relaxation, meditation, hallucinations, and all other altered states of consciousness.
Argus Panoptes: guardian of the heifer-nymph Io and son of Arestor and probably Mycenae was a primordial giant whose epithet Panoptes, “all-seeing”, led to his being described with multiple, often one hundred, eyes.
Nemesis: In ancient Greek religion, Nemesis, also called Rhamnousia or Rhamnusia, is the goddess who enacts retribution against those who succumb to hubris, and arrogance before the gods.
Enceladus: In Greek mythology, Enceladus was one of the Giants, the offspring of Gaia (Earth), and Uranus (Sky). Enceladus was the traditional opponent of Athena during the Gigantomachy, the war between the Giants and the gods, and was said to be buried under Mount Etna in Sicily.
Iapetus: Iapetus (“the Piercer”) is the one Titan mentioned by Homer in the Iliad as being in Tartarus with Cronus. He is a brother of Cronus, who ruled the world during the Golden Age.
Prometheus: Prometheus is best known for defying the gods by stealing fire from them and giving it to humanity in the form of technology, knowledge, and more generally, civilization. In some versions of the myth, he is also credited with the creation of humanity from clay.
Dionysus: Dionysos or Dionysus is the god of the grape harvest, winemaking, orchards and fruit, vegetation, fertility, insanity, ritual madness, religious ecstasy, festivity, and theatre in ancient Greek religion and myth.
Nyx: Nyx is the Greek goddess (or personification) of the night. A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation and mothered other personified deities such as Hypnos (Sleep) and Thanatos (Death), with Erebus (Darkness).
Empusa: Empusa or Empousa (Ancient Greek: Ἔμπουσα; plural: Ἔμπουσαι Empousai) is a shape-shifting female being in Greek mythology, said to possess a single leg of copper, commanded by Hecate, whose precise nature is obscure.
Polyphemus: Polyphemus (Greek: Πολύφημος, Latin: Polyphēmus) is the one-eyed giant son of Poseidon and Thoosa in Greek mythology, one of the Cyclopes described in Homer’s Odyssey. His name means “abounding in songs and legends”. Polyphemus first appeared as a savage man-eating giant in the ninth book of the Odyssey.
Cronus: In Greek mythology, Cronus, Cronos, or Kronos was the leader and youngest of the first generation of Titans, the divine descendants of the primordial Gaia (Mother Earth) and Uranus (Father Sky).
Crius: In Greek mythology, Crius was one of the Titans, children of Uranus and Gaia. The least individualized of the Twelve Titans, he is the father of Astraeus, Pallas, and Perses. Implied to be the god of constellations.
Coeus: Coeus was the God of intellect and the axis of heaven around which the constellations revolved. Coeus was an obscure figure, and like most of the Titans he played no active part in Greek mythology—he appears only in lists of Titans
It is an ongoing art project and more artworks will be added to this collection as time goes on.
“Fractal Art and its infinite possibilities of occurrences is fundamental mathematical beauty,” Nicholas said.
He also stated that the iFractals collection was developed to highlight the uniqueness of Fractal Art. Math is, without a doubt, art.
