This is an impressive high resolution Buddhabrot rendering detail resembling a nebula in outer space. The colours and its depth are intriguing - it immediately creates a strong desire to explore it riding a futuristic spaceship.

About the Buddhabrot rendering technique

The Buddhabrot is the probability distribution over the trajectories of points that escape the Mandelbrot fractal. Its name reflects its pareidolic resemblance to classical depictions of Gautama Buddha, seated in a meditation pose with a forehead mark (tikka), a traditional topknot (ushnisha) and ringlet hair.

The Buddhabrot rendering technique was discovered by Melinda Green, who later described it in a 1993 Usenet post to sci.fractals.

For more information about the Buddhabrot rendering in general visit the Buddhabrot Wikipedia entry and Melindas site: The Buddhabrot Technique .
