This work pictures a dense Julia set constructed from iterations of the following Lattès map: w = -z(z-a)2/(az-1)2, z -> ((a-2i)*w - a2 - 4)/(w - a + 2i), with a = i sqrt(3).

The dense fractal pattern pictured here actually lives on the sphere. It can be explored panoramically in the window below. (A WebGL-compatible browser is required.) More information can be found in this blog post.
