Liking where this is going… combines high-voltage (12,000V) woodburning of the center medallion with traditional Spoke/Ring carving in a Squash Blossom pattern. Probably will add additional small elements and some color. The center burn technique is often (mistakenly) called a “fractal” pattern. It’s similar but not a true fractal (where patterns repeat them selves exactly). The Lichtenberg effect was discovered in 1777 and relate to the basic principle of xerography.
