An image from an awesome demo by Ed Pegg Jr. that's part of the Wolfram Demonstrations Project. This image corresponds to Gaussian integers raised to the 11th power. The demo allows one to view Gaussian integers raised to any fractional power. The user can choose a numerator and denominator less than 20.

A Lorenz attractor by Nathan Selikoff, titled "Butterfly Effect."
"Equal Areas" by Susan McBurney.
This image, inspired by Leonardo DaVinci, builds upon a concept of equal areas. The sum of the areas of the red shapes in the bordering semicircles is equal to the sum of the areas of the red shapes inside the center circle; and the same goes for the green, yellow, pink, and peach shapes.
"Knot Structured" by George W. Hart was made by assembling 30 identical pieces of laser-cut wood. Read more here.
