This is a fractal gingerbreadman. It is also an orbital type of fractal, but unlike popcorn, the orbital formula is only applied to one starting point to create the image. This formula is:

x_{n + 1} = 1 - y_{n} +
|x_{n}|

y_{n + 1} = x_{n}

y

This fractal uses x_{0} = -0.1 and y_{0} = 0.
These values can be changed by setting the parameters
`xstart` and `ystart` in
`<param>` tags, although these don't change the
image much, and sometimes make it less interesting.
