Recent advances in fractal generation software allow the user to create multiple layers of fractal elements that may then be combined to create a composite work of fractal imagery. As an example of how this technique can be used to create art, this paper describes the process I used in creating "The Moirai," a series of three images depicting the three "Fates" from Greek mythology who personify the inescapable destiny of man.
