One of many snowflake-like fractals which can be created by replacing the outline of regular polygon with several smaller copies of itself. In this case the basic shape is a pentagon, which is replaced by five smaller pentagons, which are in turn each replaced by five even smaller pentagons... The reduction in size of the pentagons involves the 'golden ratio' are related The process can be repeated without limit, creating a shape where the space occupied by solid colour tends towards zero, even as the borders around those spaces tend towards infinite length! This particular structure is named after the famous Polish mathematician Waclaw Sierpinski.

Designed by David Lawrence, d/dx art prints are created on heavyweight Canson Infinity Museum Rag produced at the centuries-old Arches paper mill in France. This superb art paper is acid-free and uses no optical brighteners to degrade over time. Ultrachrome K3 inks provide vivid colours which will last without fading for many decades in normal conditions. The robustness of the paper makes DIY framing a simple matter.

The print is standard European A4 (210*297mm or 8.27 × 11.69 inches) in size. Prints are packed flat in crystal envelopes with cardboard stiffener and posted in a rigid container via Royal Mail first class.

Additional

The colours you are seeing on your monitor are inevitably not precisely the colours you would see if you were looking at the same design in printed form. There is simply no way around that, since the internet places limits on the range of colours that can be displayed and, even if that were not the case, every monitor is subtly (sometimes wildly!) different in the way it displays colours.

But you can be reassured that the quality of our equipment is such that colours and quality are consistent over time and the print you receive will be identical to other prints sold in galleries and art fairs to buyers who have every opportunity to handle and assess them.
