This is legitimate, believe it or not. We went to Turkey with friends in 2012, and bought rugs from them. These guys come back to the USA every year, and travel to various cities. My friends bought more rugs from them last year.
Fractals are great, and I love the videos. For more fractal videos, check out Truman Brown's channel - https://www.youtube.com/user/trumanbrown. He published some nice ones in 2012 and 2013. These are made with Mandelbulb3D software (I am learning to use it).
