This first 3D scene is baed on the idea of the Rose on the Little Prince's planet
(doesn't include the volcanoes).
All the scenes are made with Virtual Flower

You may need to install a VRML plug in to see these images - the Cortona VRML client is excellent. Just follow that link and follow the instructions on the page - the web page auto detects your operating system and browser to install a suitable version. It is also worth installing the VRML 1.0 Converter for Cortona while you are at it, to help with any version 1.0 VRML web pages you may visit later on - however these scenes are all version 2.0.
Here are some more scenes, click on each image to see it in 3D:
Download Virtual Flower to make your own flowers.
See also the Screen Saver at the end of this page to show all the scenes in one go - you get the screen saver with the installer as well.
How about a stroll through the Anaglyph Garden too while you are here, also made with Virtual Flower - you'll need those red / blue or red / cyan specs to look at those.

You can install any of these scenes as a screen saver with the excellent Cortona screen saver, again from Parallelographics.
Here's a scene prepared that will show them all one after another at random, accompanied by randomly chosen Fractal Tune Smithy midi clips for the music: random_virtual_flower.wrl. By installing that one as the only scene for the screen saver, you get them all!
If you install Virtual Flower, you get the screen saver files too, and the installer isn't that much larger than the screen saver files zip (1.2 Mb) - the installer is small because Virtual Flower re-makes all the VRML files from its much smaller .vfl files when it first runs..
If you are using another operating system however, you can get the screen saver files zip here:
