This image by Stephen Schiller has been one of my favorites for years. It shows the distribution of fractions of Gaussian integers with a restriction on the denominator. Explicitly, this is the set of complex numbers (a + bi)/(c + di) where a,b,c, and d are integers, and √(c² + d²) < 25. Source: The Pattern Book, by Clifford Pickover.
