Following my previous entry, I stumbled upon this illustration by Ernst Haeckel, from Art form in Nature, dating from the beginning of the twentieth century. This one in particular, bryozoa, caught my attention because of the simplistic depiction of intricate semi-transparent structures. His illustrations serve us as a reminder to end the hegemony of Gaussian filters over sharp details in today's computer graphics.
