A swiss army pocket knife. This image is based on my contribution "msknife" for the November '94 raytracing competition on comp.graphics.rendering.raytracing (topic: "Tools"). I ran out of time, so I had to submit it unfinished. I continue working on it when I have the time...
A japanese fan. The shape was built using the
#while directive in POV-Ray 3.
The image mapped onto the fan is Katsushika HOKUSAI's "The Great Wave", from
"Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji", Tokugawa period c.1823-1829.
(The original is a woodblock print, 14-3/4" wide, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.)
A magnifying glass floating over a piece of paper, magnifying the words "photo realistic". The lens is modeled as an intersection of two spheres, yielding real magnification and distortion -- yes, POV-Ray works that realistic!
