Genre: Steampunk

It’s not just the gears and the goggles and the leather and the sprockets, it’s the Roman Numerals.

An Orrery is a clockwork model of a planetary system. They are marvelous works. The most awesome one I have ever seen was in a film, “The Dark Crystal.” When I learned to make these flame fractals in Apophysis, they also seemed like marvelous works, and they spoke two words to me: Steampunk. Orrery. The pearls accrue in gear-like orbits, satellites of satellites, down and down to the smallest scale you can see.

The clocks are partial mesh. They are set to SL time. There are two sizes – Large, above, and medium, which is a little more than half the size.

I love the word “sprockets.”
