I assume you know Stargate, coz of your icon, but this puts me in mind of a goa'uld hand device. Although, much more intricate. I love the contrast of the scratchy lines to the soft red of the circle. It's sort of threatening!
Excellent work, I always like to see fractals up close as it shows off the wonderful and intricate detail. Nice colour gradient choice. Geat title, I think I saw an episode of Waking The Dead with that name. Tony.
